Why you need to look for signs of nursing home abuse

You may hear stories of nursing home abuse in Florida every day on the news. The thought of it hitting so close to home is hard to believe. You may think your elderly parent is safe from harm in a nursing home because she or he has not had anything bad to say. However, you should not wait for your loved one to draw your attention to the danger he or she may be in. There is always the possibility your parent is suffering at the hands of his or her caregiver.

Arbitration changes nursing home abuse cases

Residential senior living is a comfortable and efficient choice for millions of senior Floridians, and many nursing homes provide a place to live and a place to work for many across Florida. These institutions require fair oversight and the expectation of safety, because "our loved ones are there and we need to hold nursing homes accountable."

Investigation into elder abuse shows pattern of behavior

A man native to New York who spent decades in Florida is being investigated in the Sunshine State in connection to the recent death of an elderly relative. The suspect and his wife arrived in his native state from Florida last summer to act as caregivers for his 95-year-old grandmother, who was suffering from dementia.

What counts as elder abuse in Florida?

Florida is home to more senior citizens than any other U.S. state, with nearly five million residents above the age of 60. With such a high population of elderly people, the Sunshine State should remain aware of circumstances and signs of elder abuse to protect themselves, their loved ones and their neighbors.

Debunking elder abuse myths to improve your awareness

Protecting elder loved ones has become a common goal among Florida residents. These family members are often quite vulnerable due to age itself, illness or injury. Finding a safe place for elders to live and thrive is important for families who cannot open their own homes to aging relatives. While nursing home abuse and neglect are concerns, it is crucial to make sure you do not fall victim to some of the common myths that surround elder abuse.
