Covid-19 Update: We are open and working remotely to help auto accident victims

Choosing to place an elderly family member in a nursing home or assisted living facility is a big decision. Each year, many families make the choice to move their older relatives from a home situation to a facility that can help support them.

Unfortunately, sometimes the facilities we choose don’t support our loved ones in the way we expect, resulting in nursing home abuse.

Sadly, the situation is becoming an epidemic in the United States.

What Types of Abuse are Seen in Nursing Homes?

As many as 5 million senior citizens are abused each year, and it is thought that 1 in 10 have been abused.

Nursing home abuse can include many things, with physical abuse top of the list, but our parents and grandparents may also experience emotional abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, and even financial exploitation.

Spotting evidence of abuse

Evidence of abuse may include:

  • bruises and cuts for which there are no explanations
  • clothing and bedding that are torn, bloody, or soiled
  • missing or broken personal items
  • broken bones
  • weight loss or weight gain that is not associated with an illness
  • fear or cowering in the presence of certain caregivers
  • lack of engagement with other residents
  • medications being improperly administered
  • expenses that are unaccounted for
