You may have a loved one currently residing in a nursing home — a place you have put your trust into to care responsibly for your family member. Unfortunately, there are times when nursing home abuse and neglect occur, which can be devastating not only to the victim, but to the family as well. We want you to understand the signs of elder abuse and the ways to protect your loved one against abuse and neglect.
Some signs of abuse or neglect may include:
- Broken bones
- Severe dehydration
- Significant weight loss
- Poor hygiene
