Nursing Home Residents

Doctor and patient

Mobilization for Justice provides information, advice and advocacy for nursing home residents and their families.

Mobilization for Justice provides information, advice, advocacy, and legal representation for nursing home residents and their families in areas such as involuntary discharges, improper discharge planning, reasonable accommodation requests, and day pass disputes.

Mobilization for Justice continues the work of Friends and Relatives of the Institutionalized and Aged (FRIA) which, after 35 years of providing information and advice to nursing home residents and their families, suspended its operations in 2011. To fill this void MFJ developed a unit to serve nursing home residents and updated Nursing Homes and Alternatives, which was originally published by FRIA.  Called “the bible of long-term care for the elderly and their caregivers,” this book has been used by many families to ensure that their relatives receive the care they deserve.

Mobilization for Justice also provides training and educational sessions to nursing home residents and family councils. To obtain a short presentation on our services and nursing home resident rights at your next resident or family council meeting, please call 855-444-6477.

We track trends in the complaints we receive to support policy advocacy and, where necessary, we bring impact litigation. Our nursing home unit is modeled on Mobilization for Justice’s work on behalf of adult home residents, which provides trainings, advice, and legal representation that has resulted in systemic reforms that have benefited thousands of New York’s adult home residents.
