Nursing Home Abuse
Nearly 1 out of 10 nursing homes violate requirements potentially causing residents harm, serious injury, or possibly death. These homes are designed to provide a safe, caring, and worry-free environment for you and your family member. Long-Term Care Facilities, Assisted Living, and other senior living programs are all licensed facilities that must meet state and federal guidelines. Some homes for the elderly and disabled place profit before people and don’t provide the adequate services needed to ensure the best possible care for your loved ones. Unfortunately, bed sores, infections, physical abuse, neglect, and other types of elder abuse in nursing homes can happen. It is important to understand the warning signs if you feel like your loved one could be a victim.

Senior citizens deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. According to the Administration on Aging (AOA), thousands of seniors are abused, neglected, and exploited each year. Many cannot take care of themselves because they are old, frail, and more vulnerable than most. Elder persons rely on family, trusted friends, and spouses to help meet their needs. Many are at risk of harm or abuse from neglectful and/or overwhelmed caregivers. They may also be preyed on financially. Abusers can be any one who is entrusted to help take care of them. Elder abuse refers to any knowing, intentional, or negligent act by a caregiver of an older person that causes harm or serious risk of harm to a vulnerable adult. Many victims are afraid to report and discuss the abuse because it was committed by a trusted individual.
