What are my parents rights now that they are being provided care through a service provider?
Your parents still have the same rights as any adult, and have not diminished because they begin to have care services, or now live in a senior care environment. To the contrary, there are additional laws which further protect vulnerable adults and afford additional rights. Right to privacy, be free from abuse and neglect are just a couple. If your loved one is in a nursing home, they have even more Rights as a Nursing Home Resident.
Could my loved one be happy in a senior housing center or community?
