Everything You Wanted to Know, and More, About Arden Courts
Who Really Owns and Controls Arden Courts?
Arden Courts was previously owned and operated by the Heartland Manor Care company. The corporate owner was technically HCR ManorCare, one of the largest corporate-owned nursing home chains in the country at the time. Our attorneys regularly sue Manor Care and Heartland nursing homes for negligence. In 1994, HCR ManorCare expanded into the assisted living industry under the name Arden Courts.
For branding purposes, HCR ManorCare operated its skilled nursing facilities under the names “Manor Care” and “Heartland”, while it operates its assisted living facilities under the “Arden Courts” brand.
Recently, it was announced that Arden Courts would be acquired by ProMedica and rebranded under the ProMedica name. Our firm has extensive experience handling ProMedica cases of neglect as well.
What Levels of Care Does Arden Courts Provide?
Arden Courts facilities are traditionally assisted living facilities. In terms of levels of care, an assisted living facility (ALF) is lower than a skilled nursing facility (SNF), which is also known as a nursing home.
Arden Courts has taken advantage of the rapidly growing Memory Care sector of senior living communities. This is the most profitable sector for long term care providers to be in, as there are higher care needs for the memory care residents. Fittingly, our lawyers have seen an increase in Arden Courts Memory Care Unit negligence claims in the past few years.
Arden Courts’ Focus on Memory Care Puts the Company on Notice of Higher Needs Residents
Arden Courts bills itself as a “memory care focused facility.” Memory Care facilities specifically care for residents with Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia, and confusion. It is no surprise that these are the residents who require the highest level of care and supervision to prevent falls, elopement and injuring themselves.
It is insufficient for Arden Courts to accept high-acuity residents with known memory issues, then claim they cannot prevent falls or injuries. The law is, if a facility accepts payment to care for the resident, they must provide the care and supervision for which the resident paid.
I am Being Told that Arden Courts is Not Responsible for Mom’s Injury Because They Are Just an Assisted Living Facility and Not a Nursing Home
“We are just an assisted living community” is not a valid excuse for resident injuries, falls or wrongful death. In fact, most states require assisted living facilities like Arden Courts to regularly assess the residents for appropriateness of residency. This means that an ALF must make sure it can safely supervise and assist its residents. If the ALF cannot keep its residents safe due to a decline in their condition, they must send them out to a higher care facility, like a skilled nursing home.
If the facility claims Mom is at fault for her injuries because her confusion increased, the real question is, why did she remain in Arden Courts if they could not care for her?
