As age begins to take control of our family members, it may be necessary for their own safety to place them in an assisted-living facility or a nursing home. At such places, we have expectations that our family member will be properly taken care of; however there are times that abuse occurs in these locations.
If your family member is in a nursing home and has suddenly begun to show dramatic changes in behavior, nursing home abuse may be something to suspect. Nursing home abuse can manifest itself as behavioral changes, sudden outbursts, depression, sadness, and embarrassment. These changes in behavior can occur because of any of the following:
- Physical abuse
- Mental abuse
- Verbal abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Medical mistakes
- Lack of care, including not changing bedding or helping the elderly to move about (eliminates bed sores)
- Insufficient care, causing falls or other injuries
