Assisted Living and Home Health Care in Wisconsin

Assisted living facilities and in-home health care providers have a duty to provide safe and adequate care to their residents and patients. They are not required to provide the same level of care and supervision as a nursing home, but they are expected to recognize the needs of their patients and act accordingly.

If your loved one has been the victim of negligence, neglect, or abuse in an assisted living facility or by a nurse who comes to your home the Madison injury attorneys of Boller & Vaughan LLC can help.

Assisted Living

Assisted living facilities are not designed or required to provide the intense level of care that nursing homes provide. However, they are required to assess the needs of their residents and respond accordingly. That can mean requiring that the resident is moved to a nursing home or another facility which is equipped to provide the necessary level of care.

Assisted living facilities are required to maintain a basic level of care and security for their residents. They have a duty to maintain a hazard-free environment to prevent accidents and to respond appropriately and in a timely fashion when patients have emergencies.

In-home Healthcare

Having a nurse come to your home to provide care is often the ideal solution and can allow your loved one to stay at home for as long as possible, rather than having to go into a nursing home.

Unfortunately, these situations can sometimes be less than adequate or turn into outright abuse. A nurse who comes to the home must have the training and ability to provide the necessary care. In some cases, abuse comes in the form of theft or coercing the patient to give away money or property.

If you believe that a loved one has been or is currently the victim of neglect or abuse in a Wisconsin assisted living facility, please call the nursing home abuse attorneys of Boller & Vaughan LLC at 608-268-0268 or submit an online questionnaire.

Your initial consultation with our nursing home abuse lawyers is free of charge and if we take your case, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds. In many cases, a personal injury lawsuit must be filed before an applicable expiration date, known as a statute of limitations. Please call right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.


Boller & Vaughan helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life following my husband’s death. After his death, I was angry and confused because the nursing home would not listen to me when I told them my husband was sick. Boller & Vaughan explained my husband’s rights and helped me understand what the nursing home’s job was. I cannot bring back my husband, but without Boller & Vaughan, I would not have had any of my questions or concerns addressed.
