The unfortunate truth is that nursing home neglect and abuse is a major problem. When you hear stories on the news or from friends about negligence and abuse, you can only hope that when you chose a facility for your loved one, you made the right choice.
At Levin & Perconti, we have found that many Illinois healthcare facilities are failing their residents. They provide subpar care with uncaring or incompetent staff and they’ve earned health violations that families of loved ones in their care may never know about.
We’ve made it our mission to expose these facilities, bringing to light the truth about their inadequate care, and make certain that they are held accountable for their actions. We are here to fight on behalf of the families whose loved ones have been affected by these facilities and their poor practices. Read on to learn more about Aperion Care Fairfield:

Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way. We were able to sit in on the depositions and we were really able to see how hard they worked on our behalf.
