Nursing homes and Assisted living facilities promise comfort and security. But unscrupulous facilities or employees can cheat residents out of money, isolate them from family and unlawfully evict them.
For more than 35 years we’ve been responding to a critical need for legal assistance in this community. And our commitment has only gotten stronger.
Bet Tzedek’s mission is to improve the quality of care and life for Los Angeles’s most vulnerable citizens. We:
- provide direct legal help to nursing home residents and their families
- educate seniors on their legal rights and healthcare options
- work to change laws and public policy so that everyone can benefit
We know that it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the large variety of residential options for seniors. That’s why we’ve authored four consumer guides to help you make these important decisions. Our guides are comprehensive and free of charge.
