Illinois accident lawyer and Chicago nursing home lawyer providing FREE information to help those in need. Posted on Jan 10, 2013
Seth Rogen, the comedian and star of movies like Superbad, Pineapple Express, and Knocked Up is trying to raise $15,000 to combat Alzheimer’s Disease. Anyone who contributes $26 dollars towards the Alzheimer’s Association is entered in a drawing to win a ukulele signed by Seth and fellow comedians (including Aziz Ansari) who performed at his Hilarity for Charity event.
Seth Rogen clearly feels passionate about Alzheimer’s Disease. He says on his crowdrise website: “There’s a thief out there. And it’s robbing people’s memories. It’s robbing their ability to talk. It’s robbing their ability to eat, walk, get dressed, shower, or recognize their loved ones. It’s robbing people of their ability to be humans. It’s called Alzheimer’s… we’ve got to do something about it. And we’ve got to do something now.”
It’s a powerful sentiment, and it’s shared by anyone who has visited friends or family members who have been afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease.
As a Chicago nursing home lawyer, I have had many clients who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a sad truth that nursing home residents with dementia are much more likely to be abused or neglected because nursing home staff and administration are always eager to portray them as unreliable narrators.
If you have a loved one in a nursing home, be aware of your rights. Any allegation of abuse or neglect needs to be investigated by the nursing home. If an Illinois nursing home is refusing to investigate any concerns that you have about a loved one in their care, contact my law offices for a free and confidential case evaluation.
Nursing home abuse and nursing home neglect is an epidemic in Illinois and every other State. Finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease would go a long way towards putting an end to nursing home abuse and neglect.
