NEW YORK – More Americans require long-term care than ever before; and as the U.S. population ages, the demand for this care is expected to rise.
By 2040, more than 2.5 million people will need nursing home services.
It is estimated that there are over 16,000 long-term care facilities across the nation. Although there are many great homes with superb service, there are also several poorly managed facilities with repetitive violations. These homes can sometimes put your loved one in a dangerous situation.
To avoid this unfortunate reality, the Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys at Cellino & Barnes created the Parent Care App.
“Our goal was to create a go-to source for families to find the best nursing homes in their area,” Nursing Home Abuse Attorney Steve Barnes said. “The app gives families all the information they need about a nursing home and its health history – and it puts all this information in the palm of your hands.”
The app collects and analyzes current data and health inspection reports from nursing homes across the country. If a long-term care facility is under-staffed or has had health inspection violations, Parent Care’s ‘Star Rating’ system will give you a summary.
“No one wants to send a loved one to a dysfunctional nursing home wrought with abuse and mistreatment,” Barnes said. “The Parent Care app can identify the high-quality facilities in your area and help families make the best decisions when they’re choosing a nursing home.”
The Parent Care App is available on the iTunes App Store and on the Google Play store.
