Do You Know The Warning Signs Of Nursing Home Abuse?
When you entrust your loved one’s care to a nursing home or care facility, it is one of the most personal decisions you can make. Your loved one is at their most vulnerable and is susceptible to neglect and abuse. While staff members at many nursing homes care deeply for their residents, even the best care home can struggle with abuse and neglect.

Know The Red Flags
Abuse and neglect can be difficult to spot, particularly if your loved one is unable to express themselves. This is why it is crucial that you know how to spot misconduct. Ask yourself:
- Does my loved one have unexplained bruises, bed sores or recurrent illness?
- Are possessions going missing or financial discrepancies appearing?
- Is my loved one experiencing personal hygiene issues like regularly being unbathed or having matted hair or unmaintained nails?
- Has my loved one suddenly lost significant weight or begun to miss meals?
Any of these can be a sign that your loved one is not receiving the care and attention they need. There is recourse.
