Identifying the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect

Nursing homes are great options for Greenville seniors who are no longer capable of living safely on their own. However, they can also be a source of harm. Many seniors are injured and die from episodes of nursing home abuse and neglect each year. As a relative of an elderly person who is in the care of a nursing home or assisted-living facility, you should be concerned about the health, safety and well-being of your loved one at all times. Knowing how to spot the signs of abuse and neglect are the first steps you can take to protect your senior family member.

New rule gives nursing home residents the right to sue

As parents and grandparent s age, their children often take on the tasks of caring for their needs and supporting them. When this burden becomes too great or medically impossible, it sometimes becomes necessary to place the elder in a nursing home with experienced caretakers and nurses. While this can provide some relief, there is also often a new burden of wondering whether or not the family member is safe and properly cared for.

How common is elder abuse in nursing homes?

Those of us with elderly loved ones in nursing homes or long-term care facilities want the best services money can buy. But the cost of quality elder care is high, and given what the average resident and their family can afford, it's natural to wonder whether our parents, grandparents or other residents of nursing homes are getting everything they need to thrive.
