Nursing Home and Elder Abuse

Nursing Home and Elder Abuse

Injury Attorneys | Restoring LivesTM

The Administration on Aging division of the Department of Health and Human Services defines elder abuse as “any knowing, intentional, or negligent act by a caregiver or any other person that causes harm or a serious risk of harm to a vulnerable adult.”

When you are unable to care for aging loved ones, a nursing home can be a loving alternative. You expect the people you entrust to care for your loved one to provide the same nurturing attention you would give them at home. You deserve to trust your loved ones are well cared for. Your loved ones deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Nursing home abuse or neglect can occur and prompt a family to seek out the assistance of a nursing home abuse lawyer in Indiana in order to help hold the nursing home accountable.

Types of Nursing Home and Elder Abuse

Nursing home and elder abuse can take many forms:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial exploitation
  • Neglect

To help identify elder abuse, it’s important for you to be familiar with the warning signs.

If you suspect an elderly loved one has been the victim of financial exploitation, file a report with a state or local agency.
