Elder abuse can arise from a one-time violent encounter or a systematic pattern of negligent behavior.


Types of Elder Abuse

Elder abuse can be a one-time violent encounter, or a pattern of damaging behavior by caregivers. These are the most common types of abuse seen in a nursing home setting:

Any act or omission like this by a caretaker will cause suffering, pain, loss of dignity, and an overall diminished quality of life for the victim. The emotional damage by itself can take years away from a senior, and they tend to have poorer health after undergoing any form of abuse.

Signs to Watch For

The most important thing you can do is be involved in your loved one’s life. Visit the facility or ask someone else to check in. Ask questions of the staff and listen to their answers, as well as their body language. Are residents wandering around without supervision? Do caregivers seem flustered or forgetful? These may be signs that the nursing home is understaffed. Unfortunately, these companies sometimes care more about squeezing out profits than providing adequate, experienced, and round-the-clock care. They tell themselves it’s “good enough,” but it’s not.

If your loved one shows the following signs, it might indicate abuse or neglect at the nursing home:

Not everything is a symptom of abuse. Sometimes, a senior has a degenerative disease, like Alzheimer’s or dementia, which can cause these symptoms. The important thing is to find out why your loved one is acting this way, and an experienced Long Beach personal injury lawyer may be able to help.
