Is elder abuse really underreported?

Adult neglect, also known as elder or dependent neglect, threatens the lives of those who are most vulnerable. Caregivers who work with these individuals are meant to be providing them with much-needed protection and support, but instead, they neglect these people and hurt their chances of living comfortably and without injuries.

Experts say that nursing home neglect deserves more severe fines

Nursing home residents are some of the most fragile and vulnerable individuals in the United States, and they deserve excellent care and assistance in their living facilities. Unfortunately, they too often suffer from neglect and even outright abuse.

Recent abuse case shows vulnerability of Alzheimer’s patient

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most debilitating conditions affecting the elderly and their loved ones. A recent study reported that two-thirds of those residing in nursing homes are struggling with some form of dementia. Unfortunately, these patients are among the most vulnerable to elder abuse.

Are nursing home wages too low for proper care?

When you put your loved one in a nursing home, you expect that they will not be neglected and that they will get proper care. It goes beyond human decency and compassion. That is literally what the workers are getting paid to do. It's just professionalism.

Be an advocate to help protect your loved one

Placing your loved one into a nursing home or assisted-living facility is a major step. You know that it could be positive for them, but if it's the wrong place or the wrong people working with your loved one, things could also go wrong.

Bedsores go far beneath the surface

When visiting your aging mother in the nursing home, you notice that she does not seem well. Her color is off, and she has not gotten out of bed. Her mobility is declining, but so is her overall health. She seems in pain, but you do not know what is causing it.
