How to Protect Your Elderly Loved One From Nursing Home Abuse

Published on Jul 28, 2016 at 7:41 pm in Nursing Home Abuse.

Bey and Associates have decades of experience advocating and protecting individuals and families who have been affected by nursing home abuse in Georgia.

There are six million people above the age of 65 in the United States. Many of those people will require some form of assisted living as they age, which means they may be subjected to some form of abuse, whether it be physical and emotional.

If you have an elderly loved one in an assisted living or nursing home facility, take any signs of abuse very seriously. Do not ever write off signs of abuse as illness, dementia, or their overall frailty.

Caregivers will try to explain their physical or emotional abuse ailments as symptoms of their age, mental deterioration, or previous illnesses. You should never dismiss these signs because of a caregiver’s explanation. Also, be extremely wary if the caregiver often refuses to leave the elder alone in your care.
