Choosing A Nursing Home in Houston
Houston attorney, Christina Lesher, brings a holistic view to the practice of elder law. We are a safe haven for seniors as well as a one-stop shop for professionals who work with the elderly and disabled. We advocate on behalf of the “whole person.” We offer a wide range of other useful services, such as referring clients to appropriate community services for individual needs such as transportation, adult day program, and discussing criteria for choosing long-term care insurance or long-term care facilities, such as a nursing home.
The Law Office of Christina Lesher has the experience necessary to help you evaluate the appropriateness of your nursing home choice on the basis of a number of other factors, including location, quality of staff, as well as the legal matters involving Medicaid, Medicare Plan D prescription drug plan coverage, and contracts. We also work with local geriatric care managers to assist with care monitoring and choosing a nursing home or assisted living facility. Geriatric care managers are trained professionals (usually with a background in nursing or social work) who help families with long-term care needs.
