Free Webcast: Using the New Toolkit to Fight Nursing Home Evictions

When: Thursday, November 18, 2021, at 11:00-11:45 P.T./2:00-2:45 E.T.

Improper evictions are a long-standing problem in nursing homes across the country. While there are only six legally valid reasons for eviction, nursing homes often evict residents for various invalid reasons, including being “difficult,” needing one-on-one attention, switching from Medicare to Medicaid, and not complying with facility policies.

Legal assistance attorneys and elder rights and aging advocates play an important role in fighting these evictions. Justice in Aging has created an actionable toolkit of resources to help residents and advocates fight back. To educate both residents and professionals, the toolkit includes:

  • Write-ups to identify and challenge eight common evictions;
  • Sample language for use in defending residents in administrative hearings, specifically for attorneys and other advocates; and
  • Templates for state-court injunctive relief actions to force a nursing facility to allow a resident to return after a hospitalization. 

In this training, presenters will demonstrate how to access and use the toolkit and how to apply it to common situations that advocates may encounter.


  • Eric Carlson, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
  • Gelila Selassie, Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging
