A: As to the immediate needs most states or counties have an Office of Aging or office that handles issues that happen to seniors like nursing home care.They can best advise you on getting her transferred. Unfortunately finding a place may not be easy. As far as the potential for bad care, you need to contact a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Assn who handles Nursing Care issues. They give free consultations. All the best with this extremely difficult situation.
