Dehydration can be a serious problem for nursing home residents

Dehydration is a real health concern for many elderly people. It can occur when people don't consume as much water as their bodies need to function properly, and can lead to serious and potentially fatal conditions.

Do you suspect your close friend is suffering from elder neglect?

Imagine you have an older friend who is approaching the point health-wise of not being able to care for him or herself. You know that this individual has people around him or her who can provide care; nevertheless, you have a suspicion that your friend isn't getting the kind of care he or she requires. In fact, it seems like your friend is suffering from elder neglect.

Important questions to ask loved ones in assisted living

One of the toughest decisions in life is the decision to move a loved one into an assisted living facility. Doing so doesn't mean that you are giving up on them or that you are a bad son or daughter. You are making this decision because it is in the best interest of your parent. The facility can provide them with around the clock care and monitoring that they require in order to remain safe.

What can you do if you think a nursing home isn't doing its job?

In a nursing home, it's vital that people get the support they need. When staff numbers drop and there aren't enough workers for the nursing home to operate smoothly, residents can become endangered.

How to identify and stop elder financial abuse

Although many people focus on physical abuse with senior citizens in nursing homes, there is another form of abuse that is just as detrimental. The American Association of Retired Persons reports that one out of every 44 cases of elder financial abuse remain unreported, which is why it is critical for family members and other loved ones to be aware of significant changes in behavior. 

Understanding assisted living and what to watch out for

Assisted living isn't just for people who are growing older. It's also helpful for individuals who can't return home after an accident or after a hospital stay. If they need little care on a daily basis, then assisted living might be the best option.
