Many elderly people are in long term care facilities like nursing homes, and most families believe that their loved ones receive excellent care there. Plenty of nursing home patients receive good care and live happy, healthy lives in their care of facilities, but others are subjected to abuse and neglect.
Nursing home abuse can take many forms and is rarely reported because many victims are afraid to speak out. If you recognize any of the signs listed below in your loved one, take action.
By learning the signs and symptoms of elder abuse and how to act on behalf of an elderly person who is being abused, we can help someone else while strengthening our own defenses against elder abuse in the future.
