Your loved one deserves appropriate care: Fight against abuse

Elderly individuals are among those most vulnerable to abuse. There are a few reasons for this, including that they may be isolated from being able to report the abuse, they may fear reporting the abuse due to the potential for retaliation, and they may not be strong enough to fight back.

How broken bones happen in understaffed nursing homes

For some older adults, medical issues resulting from a fall are exactly why they end up in a nursing home. A broken hip or a few broken ribs can be enough to keep someone from adequately caring for themselves. If their family members do not live nearby or are unable to provide the degree of care an injured older adult requires, a nursing home often becomes the only viable solution for safety.

Nursing home abuse flag can help identify dangerous facilities

Nursing home abuse is a horrible situation for anyone to go through. The elderly are among the most vulnerable, and that means that they're more likely to go through neglect or abuse that is not reported.

Understanding the early stages of a pressure sore

Pressure sores, which are often known as bedsores, are one potential sign of elder neglect. They happen when an elderly person who cannot move well on their own is left lying in the exact same position for too long. The pressure points against even a soft mattress can lead to serious physical distress. In the worst cases, these sores become extensive, get infected and could even have fatal complications.
