Why We Care: Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
A person’s golden years should be just that: golden. It’s the time of a person’s life where they can focus on enjoying the pleasures of life and the company of their loved ones. But the general effects of aging, whether it be mental or physical or both, invites opportunity to be taken advantage of, especially in a nursing home.
When our loved ones go on to live in a nursing home or senior care home, we trust their caregivers to treat them with the same dignity and respect we give them. Sometimes, even in the best nursing homes, there can be neglect. Facilities can have budget problems and be short-staffed. This invites a lack of oversight that is necessary to prevent negligence and abuse – especially because in many cases a family may not even recognize that the low quality of care in a nursing home would be considered neglect and can be litigated to keep their loved ones safe and healthy.
A person’s golden years should be filled with trust, dignity, love, and respect. Nobody deserves to have that violated.
We have heard families tell us stories of the abuse faced by their loved ones. With each, we are motivated to work diligently to give them the justice they deserve.
