Nursing assistant fired after slapping nursing home resident

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are a key part of how our elders receive the care they need as they progress into their "golden years." With one of the highest populations of Americans above the age of 65, Florida leads the nation in the availability of residential care.

Once people have reached their "golden years," they have the hope that the responsibilities of life give way to enjoyment of the world around them. Unfortunately, old age can bring some medical and logistic complications, such as a reliance on medication for chronic ailments or an lessened ability to use stairs.

Florida rates low in protections against elder abuse

Florida has the nation's largest number and proportion of senior citizens, as well as one of the highest concentrations of nursing homes and other assisted living facilities. At the same time, concerns about the safety and health of elder residents of the Sunshine State are also at an all-time high.

Nursing homes may medicate residents inappropriately

Nursing homes are meant to be places where elderly residents can feel safe and cared for while their families and friends are free from worry. This is why potential residents of assisted-living facilities and their loved ones must do proper research and find the nursing home that is right for them.

Seeking help in avoiding abuse and neglect in nursing homes

There often comes a time in a long, full life when a person needs help taking care of his or her needs for food, medicine and security. The rising age of the population of Florida has created an efficient and expansive system of long-term care in private homes and at assisted-living facilities like nursing homes.

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.
