Psychological abuse, also referred to as emotional abuse, may affect elderly residents and patients at nursing homes in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana. This is a particularly devastating type of elder abuse because it can be difficult to detect and prove. It rarely leaves physical marks, but it can have a tremendous impact on an elderly victim.

Examples of Psychological Abuse in Nursing Homes
In spite of any mental or physical disabilities caused by illness, injury, or old age, the elderly deserve to be treated as human beings. They deserve to live out the rest of their lives with dignity while receiving proper care, and this includes the way they are treated on an emotional or psychological level.
Often quite hidden and underreported, forms of psychological elder abuse may include:
- Yelling and verbal threats
- Threatening behavior
- Demeaning behavior
