Signs of nursing home abuse

Elder abuse is becoming a bigger problem in the United States for a multitude of reasons, and people are more aware of the issue. The National Center on Elder Abuse reports in 2014, over 2 million people resided in a nursing home or residential care community. During that year, about 188,000 complaints were made to a national reporting system. About 8 percent of the complaints involved abuse or gross neglect.

Steps to take when you suspect elder abuse

While it may be distressing to consider and upsetting to discover, elder abuse in retirement homes can be overlooked due to a loved one's deteriorating mental condition or inability to communicate as a result of a stroke. Whether the abuse or neglect is physical, emotional or financial, such exploitation does occur.
