Many families in Missouri entrust their loved ones to nursing homes across the state. While some facilities strive to provide a standard of care, others make a lot of promises about providing good care, but end up disappointing families with substandard care, abuse, and neglect toward their loved ones. Too often when families complain about bad care, they are either ignored or the changes that are made last only a few days before going back to the status quo. To help families lodge complaints with Missouri nursing homes, I have created this FREE guide for download: The Art of the Complaint.

Nursing homes want your business and they will tell you just about anything to get it. They will promise to take care of your Mom or your Dad just like they would their own, but sometimes those promises are not kept. When the nursing home you have chosen fails to live up to their promises and staff members are hard to find you likely have no idea what to do.
Individuals and families across Missouri are involved in car crashes every day. While some of the incidents result in little damage and few injuries, far too many people suffer serious injuries requiring extensive medical treatment. Sadly, some crashes even end in death. When you download this FREE guide, you will learn how to build a strong legal case after a car crash, the tactics insurance companies use to avoid paying fair compensation for your injuries, and the 11 mistakes you need to avoid if you or a loved one is involved in a serious auto accident.
Contractures occur in nursing home residents if they are not properly cared for with appropriate exercise or therapy. Contractures are the shortening and hardening of muscles which can cause immobility and pain. They typically occur in bed-bound residents because nursing homes don’t make contracture prevention and priority and usually don’t even have the staffing levels necessary to provide the care required to prevent them.

Bed sores are skin injuries that commonly occur with elderly nursing home patients…but they shouldn’t. Nursing homes often tell shocked family members that bed sores are unavoidable or just part of the aging process. That is simply not true. Bed sores happen when nursing home residents are left lying in the same position for long periods of time. That prolonged pressure cuts off blood flow to the area under pressure and eventually results in dead tissue. Open wounds then begin to form and can get worse until, at its worst, you can actually see bone. This FREE guide, 3 Key Factors in Preventing Bed Sores, covers what you should know about how to prevent bed sores and the warning signs if one of your loved ones is in nursing home care.
