Understanding Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
The thought of it is disturbing, but nursing home abuse and neglect occurs all too frequently. Nursing home abuse and neglect takes many forms, but all of it is damaging in some way – emotionally, physically, or financially.
As the elderly population increases and the social dynamics of our society begin to favor nursing home care over in-home care, we must be ever more vigilant in protecting senior citizens from abuse. Knowing the signs of nursing home abuse and contacting a nursing home abuse lawyer if you know of or suspect abuse is critical in the fight against nursing home abuse and neglect.
Understanding types of nursing home abuse may go a long way to preventing it in our society, or at the very least protecting your loved ones from suffering its consequences.
