Nursing Home Abuse
Finding the right nursing home for a loved one is an important process. Most of the time, the elderly do not want to leave their homes and surrender their independence to a nursing home. This is a difficult decision, and you rely on the nursing home to care for your loved one properly.
Unfortunately, there are situations where caregivers mistreat elderly patients. Physical abuse is easy to identify, but emotional and psychological abuse tend to go unnoticed. Pay close attention to your loved one when you are visiting them, and if they are exhibiting any of the following behaviors, investigate the situation immediately.
