What Can You Do if You Fear Your Loved One Is a Victim of Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect?

Substandard care, neglect, and abuse are always a risk when you have a loved one in a nursing home, assisted living community, long-term care facility, or rehabilitation center. Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including physical and emotional abuse, financial abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect.

Unfortunately, many victims are not aware of what’s going on or able to communicate the problem. In many cases, victims are too afraid to speak up, especially if their abuser has threatened them or their family members.

Symptoms of abuse can be subtle or non-existent, especially in cases that involve emotional or sexual victimization. The symptoms of neglect are easier to identify, and include unexplained weight loss, untreated illnesses, bedsores, poor hygiene, dirty bedding, etc.

Many victims’ family members report having a feeling that something just isn’t quite right.

If you have that feeling, or if you have seen something that makes you suspect your loved one could be a victim, talk to a nursing home neglect attorney as quickly as possible.
