Free Webinar from Justice In Aging: How to Resolve Common Nursing Home Problems

Tuesday, August 4, 2015 11:00 a.m. PT/ 2:00 p.m. ET

Many common nursing home practices are, in fact, illegal. In order to receive the best possible quality of care, a resident or resident’s family member should be familiar with the protections of the federal Nursing Home Reform Law, and understand how to use the law effectively.

This free webinar from Justice In Aging, with Directing Attorney Eric Carlson, will detail the most common problems that crop up—from evictions to excessive medication—and provide practical, clear tips to help family members and advocates navigate solutions.

Presenter: Eric Carlson, Justice in Aging
