It’s difficult to imagine that residents in Assisted Living or CBRF facilities could ever be subjected to cruelty, abuse or neglect. Our elders deserve the best care — especially when they’re no longer able to care for themselves.
Unfortunately, many residents of assisted living or community-based residential facilities in Wisconsin are subject to substandard care or outright abuse. When these facilities mistreat their residents, a Madison nursing home abuse attorney at Boller & Vaughan can help to hold them accountable. We understand that entrusting a loved one to assisted living might be necessary, but it’s never easy. At the very least, you deserve to know that your relatives are in good hands.
Our firm will fight for justice for your family, including financial compensation for pain, suffering, and expense.
The Difference Between Nursing Homes and Assisted Living/CBRFs in Wisconsin
Wisconsin law distinguishes various kinds of care facilities, and different standards apply to each. At Boller & Vaughan, a Madison nursing home abuse attorney can help you understand these differences and whether your facility may have harmed your loved one.
Nursing Homes exist to provide in-depth, comprehensive, and 24/7 “nursing” care for people who are no longer able to live on their own. State and federal law require extensive compliance with a number of regulations and a strict duty of care. Our legal team has extensive experience in litigating instances of nursing home abuse and neglect in Wisconsin.
Community-Based Residential Facilities (CBRF) are Assisted Living facilities that have been specially designated and licensed by the state of Wisconsin for a specific level of senior health care. Here again, CBRFs are not held to the same standards as nursing homes, but they do have clear responsibilities for conscientious care.
Different CBRFs have different classifications or licensure levels, and distinct legal duties may attach to those various licenses. A Madison nursing home abuse attorney at Boller & Vaughan can help determine whether you might have a case for CBRF neglect.

These companies’ business is appropriately caring for frail and elderly residents.
