Group homes are supposed to provide a safe and caring environment for people with special needs. Residents often have extensive disabilities that require professional, compassionate care. They rely wholly on the staff members to assist them with daily needs. Sadly, these residents sometimes become targets of predatory behavior.
No family should have to face the nightmare of a vulnerable loved one's mistreatment in a group home. When you realize — or suspect — that something is amiss, it's time to seek professional guidance from an attorney who will give your concerns the full consideration they deserve.
