In 2013, the village at Northridge, Illinois was sued by an elderly couple who claimed they were being mistreated.
The old woman claims she went without medical care for years and that her husband’s Alzheimer’s condition worsened over time. The suit also alleges he had been physically abused in his later life as well as suffering from inadequate living conditions such as a lack of heat or clean water.
Heather Johnson is one of the plaintiffs’ attorneys and says it took three years to get this case into trial because their allegations were not taken seriously by authorities on behalf of the village. However she said if residents are neglected or abused then there needs to be consequences-and those people need to know what rights they have under law so they can protect themselves better.,
The “the village at northridge prices” is a lawsuit that was filed by the family of an elderly woman who was abused and neglected in the care of Northridge. The lawsuit claims that the Village At Northridge failed to provide adequate care for their mother.
NEW YORK (CBSLA) — A local family claims their 98-year-old mother was forced to live in filth leading up to her death, from insects to mildew, and they’re suing the high-end assisted care home, as well as warning others that it may happen to their loved ones.

From the exterior, The Village At Northridge seems opulent, deserving of Gertrude Iskowitz’s over $8,000 monthly rent when she died at the age of 98.
Cockroaches, both living and dead, were discovered inside Iskowitz’s flat.
In his mother’s apartment, Steve Iskowitz claimed, “We even had movers report cockroaches were leaping out of the bed.”
They also discovered filthy carpets as well as mildew in the bathroom and kitchen. Her granddaughter was taken aback by the sight.
Stephanie Jacobo stated, “She loved everything tidy and clean, and to think she died living like that.”
Jacobo was so taken aback that she recorded the day after her grandma died, in January, while they were packing up her stuff. The family said they hadn’t been inside her residence in over a year due to COVID-19 limitations.
“It was a disaster. It’s something I’m always thinking about. Judy Gilder stated, “I can’t believe my mother lived like that.”

The 98-year-contract old’s stipulated that her flat be cleaned once a week.
“It doesn’t matter how much you pay. No one should live in such a manner. Gilder said, “No one’s loved one should live like that.”
The State Department of Social Services found all four of the family’s accusations to be true, including the cockroach infestation and mold, according to a complaint investigation report. Iskowitz was sent to the hospital in 2019 for acute swelling in her face caused by insect bites, according to her family.
In addition, according to research, Iskowitz complained about roaches and bugs four times in 2020.
“Raid was put on the floor in the bathroom, and an insect repellant, deet, was placed next to her bed, with her room number on it,” Gilder added.
Because of the epidemic, Iskowitz’s daughter stated she attempted to get her mother out of The Village, but no one would accept her. The Village at Northridge and its parent firm, SRG Living, have now been sued for elder abuse and neglect by the family.
“People must be advocates for their loved ones. “I don’t want this to happen to anybody else,” Gilder expressed his concern.
Officials of The Village at Northridge, for their part, issued the following statement:
