Caring Representation for Victims of Abuse and Their Families

How Does Elder Abuse Happen?

Elder abuse is on the rise in nursing homes, senior living facilities and other care institutions across the country. Although anyone can be a perpetrator, such abuse often occurs at the hands of caretakers who are charged with the elder’s well-being. Overcrowded and understaffed facilities as well as inadequately trained staff can lead to unfortunate incidents of physical abuse.

Neglect is another form of abuse that can be just as harmful as physical abuse. It often leads to falls, bedsores and other complications that can worsen the victim’s already fragile medical state. Even a single fall due to neglect is inexcusable; any fall can have a drastic impact on your loved one’s long-term health and quality of life.
