Preventing and recovering from nursing home abuse

Moving a beloved relative to a nursing home or assisted living facility is often a difficult decision. No one wants to admit that they need help taking care of themselves, especially after a long and successful life looking after their own needs and the needs of their families.

Investigations of nursing home abuse raise questions

Florida has an ever-growing population of senior citizens, as elderly Americans and Canadians discover the warm climate and pleasant surroundings. Thousands of Floridians over the age of 65 rely on assistance to keep up their health care and safety.

Would you recognize the signs of senior sexual abuse?

One issue you may not think you have to worry about when placing your elderly parent or loved one in a nursing home is sexual abuse. Unbeknownst to you and many people in the Aventura area, seniors are at risk of being sexually assaulted by nursing home staff. You may think your parent is safe in her or his nursing home, but the truth of the matter is, many older people are abused by the very people who are supposed to care for them. 

Elder abuse may expand with the population

There are many causes of elder abuse, and there are many types of bad behavior in which it can take form. Although experts believe that the majority of abuse takes place in a senior citizen's own home at the hands of family or in-home caregivers, it is also a major concern in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
