nursing home abuse Archives

Man killed by fellow nursing home resident on video

Abuse and neglect are two of the primary concerns of nursing home residents and their families and friends. It is hard to protect elder people from all hazards in the world, and we always hope that assisted living facilities staffed with round-the-clock care can reduce dangers.

What are the rights of Floridians in nursing homes?

It is vital for senior citizens living in assisted-living facilities, as well as their families and friends, to avoid or report incidents of elder abuse perpetrated by the management or staff of those facilities. Unfortunately, the isolation of nursing home life can make spotting these incidents difficult.

How to avoid falls in nursing homes

It is inevitable that people become more concerned with physical health as they age. The human body is a temple, which occasionally needs extra scaffolding as it enters the golden years. This is why many elderly people and their families opt to involve professional caretakers in their lives as problems mount.

How to spot potential nursing home abuse and neglect

Nursing homes are integral parts of health care for senior citizens who are unable to fully care for themselves, as their families often have employment and lifestyles that keep them from taking on full responsibility. It is a serious and harmful breach of trust if nursing home staff do not properly care for residents.

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.

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.

Although nursing homes can be the site of elder abuse and caregivers can be guilty of related crimes, the problem also exists in the home. Anywhere that elders and their reactions to events can be hidden from public view is a possible site for abuse, which thrives on secrecy.
