Long Beach Elder Abuse & Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers

Protecting the Rights of California’s Senior Population

California has one of the largest populations of senior citizens, and according to the California Department of Aging, the number of residents aged 60 and over is expected to increase by 166% by 2060. With so many seniors living in California, there is a true need for elder abuse attorneys to advocate for their rights if they are abused, neglected, or mistreated in any way.

From offices located at One World Trade Center, the Long Beach nursing home abuse attorneys at Garcia & Artigliere represent elderly clients and their families in litigation related to physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, bedsores, fecal impaction, and other serious injuries related to neglect in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and elder care centers.

We also help victims of abusive conduct by in-home care professionals. We are known for our results and for handling complex elder abuse litigation in California and across the U.S.

If you have witnessed signs of elder abuse, have experienced abuse yourself, or have a loved one who has reported mistreatment at a nursing home, call Garcia & Artigliere at (562) 608-1425. Our firm can help.

Recognizing the Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

It is an unfortunate truth that elderly patients and residents at nursing homes, elder care centers, and residential care communities are sometimes abused or neglected by the very people entrusted with their well-being. You need to be aware of the signs of nursing home abuse so it can be stopped.

The following may be signs that abuse is occurring at a nursing home:

  • Your loved one is withdrawn, depressed, fearful, and/or anxious
  • You are not allowed to be alone with your loved one
  • Your loved one has experienced unexplained or recurring injuries
  • Your loved one was recently diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease
  • Your loved one is showing signs of dehydration or malnutrition
  • You have noticed signs of poor personal hygiene or unclean property grounds
  • Your loved one is afraid of a specific caregiver

If you notice anything suspicious, do not be afraid to follow up. It is better to investigate the matter than to look the other way and miss a serious case of abuse or neglect. We also recommend making frequent, unannounced visits and staying in close communication with your elderly loved one so you can notice any signs of mistreatment.
