Father was put in a Nursing Home July 2016. He is 83 years

Customer Question

Father was put in a Nursing Home July 2016. He is 83 years old. Our stepmother will not give us the name of the Nursing Home (long story). All we wish to have is the name and phone # of the Nursing Home. We live in Kentucky and he lives bin Texas. Is there any legal recourse we can take? We are so worried about him! Thank you for your time

The Office of the Ombudsman represents all nursing home residents in Texas, call them too to see if they can check up on him and at least give you some information as well.
