Standing Up for Abused Elderly

Anytime an elderly loved one is put in a nursing home, families trust that the caretakers will treat him or her with dignity, kindness, and respect. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In fact, nursing home abuse is on the rise in this country and quickly becoming an epidemic that has affected countless elderly victims and their families. A nursing home should be a safe and healthy place for our elderly loved ones to enjoy their remaining years.

Most elderly people don’t speak up for themselves because they are either physically unable to do so or because they fear retaliation from their caretakers. However, there are certainly signs of abuse that family member should look out for.

The following forms of abuse can occur in a nursing home:

  • Physical abuse, such as leg and wrist restraints, injuries, and inconsistent medication dosages

  • Financial exploitation, such as scamming your elderly loved one out of money, or otherwise extorting them
  • Sexual abuse
  • Psychological abuse, such as intimidation tactics, manipulation, refusing food and drink, and more
