AARP Foundation Sues Nursing Home To Stop Illegal Evictions

Gloria Single and her husband Bill Single in the dining hall of the skilled nursing floor at Pioneer House, Sacramento. AARP attorneys say states need to more tightly enforce laws that prohibit illegal evictions of the sort that separated the Singles, and sped up her physical decline.

Gloria and Bill Single lived together in a nursing home until she was evicted without warning. Complaints about illegal evictions from nursing homes are up 73 percent in California since 2011.
