Nursing home negligence harms senior citizens

Long-term care facilities have very specific duties that they must complete for the residents. These individuals pay to be cared for in a certain way at the facility. The level of care depends on the ability of the resident and how much self-care they can manage. Unfortunately, there are sometimes residents in these facilities that don't get the care they need. This can be the result of negligence.

The many faces of nursing home abuse and neglect

 The day comes that your father or mother can no longer take care of themselves. You have the choice to hire in-home care, have them move in with you or send them to live in a nursing home. If you chose the latter, you want to make sure your loved one’s care is top of mind for the caregiver -- and treated as if you were caring for them yourself. The worst thing to imagine, is abuse.

Senior citizen abuse can be far reaching

Elder abuse is a huge problem because it puts those who are most vulnerable at even more risk of suffering greatly due to the abuse. While anyone is a potential victim of abuse, females are the majority of the victims. The abusers in these cases vary greatly. Sometimes, the person is the spouse or a family member. It is also possible that the person who is mistreating the elderly person might be a nursing home staff member or someone else who is paid to care for the senior citizen.
