Getting older is a part of life. What is not expected with aging individuals, however, is the sudden loss of the ability to care for themselves. Whether it is due to an illness or simply old age, this situation can cause family members to consider various options to care for an elderly loved one. While it might be more ideal for one to care for an aging loved one, this is not always a possibility. Thus, many consider a nursing home to be their best option.
While these facilities can offer safe and adequate care and living arrangements, some could be the cause of great harm due to abuse or neglect. Even when families take the time to fully assess the available nursing homes, with the chosen location well vetted, nursing home abuse could occur undetected for some time. This is why it is important to understand the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect.
