Nursing Home Care: What if I Feel My Loved One is Being Mistreated?

Nursing Home Care: What if I Feel My Loved One is Being Mistreated?

Your Loved Ones Deserve Care and Respect

Whether they’re battling health problems or not, your loved ones have persevered through life and deserve to be treated extremely well in their golden years. Unfortunately, especially while residing in a nursing home or care facility, their health and communication problems can cause them to be vulnerable to abuse.

Elderly abuse can occur in:

  • Nursing Homes
  • Assisted Living Homes
  • Other Residential Facilities

You’ve put a lot of care and thought into selecting the best home for your retired loved one and it can be absolutely calamitous to learn your loved ones are being neglected, treated unfairly or even physically abused.

Different Types of Abuse

Abuse associated with the elderly does not only include physical abuse, but also:

  • Fraud
  • Financial Abuse*
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Identity Theft

*It’s important to note that financial abuse of the elderly is increasing. Con artists understand the elderly are an easy target. Often financial abuse comes from someone who you have placed in a position of trust.

Warning Signs

There are a lot of warning signs that you can look for if you have suspicions about the care your loved one is receiving, including, but not limited to:

  • Unexplained Bed Sores
  • Problems Financially
  • Changes in Personality
  • Unexpected Weight Loss
  • Injuries
  • Overmedication
