Are you or your loved one being sent to a nursing home sometime soon? The application process for a nursing home can be alarming, but having an attorney by your side can guarantee that you or your loved one is kept safe from legal bindings.
Before you or a loved one enters a nursing home for the foreseeable future, an application process needs to occur. The nursing home application has many intricate parts that pertain to the rules and regulations of the establishment.
Laws and other portions of the application are much more complicated, as written by the nursing home's attorney. One of the portions of the application is the personal guarantee agreement. Many believe this personal guarantee agreement needs to be signed before someone can lawfully enter a nursing home for the remainder of their life. But is this true?
Believe it or not, you do not need to sign a personal guarantee agreement to be admitted to a nursing home. Although the nursing home will try to sway you to sign this portion of the application as best they can, you are not legally obligated to do so.
Talk to one of our attorneys; they can help you sort out the legal documents of the nursing home applications, especially portions like the personal guarantee agreement. Another portion of the nursing home application that does not require your understanding is the arbitration clause. But more on that in another blog post.
