Nursing Homes and Alzheimer’s Patients
Elders can be the target of abuse in nursing homes. They are in a weak position and need someone take care of them for their daily life and medications. Sometimes, a nursing home employee may influence an elder and abuse them. The abuse could be financial, mental, physical or even sexual. There are also the medication errors and all type of neglect. But at one point, the elder talks to a relative about the abuse and asks for help.
It can be more difficult when the elder has dementia, like Alzheimer’s for example. You don’t know if you can entrust your loved one or the nursing home. It is not necessary to be paranoid but California nursing home abuse attorneys recommend that you should be aware about the situation of your loved one and should be curious and asking questions to the nursing homes, the caregivers, and other employees. The more the family is involved in the life of the elder, less the risks of abuse are significant. It will be more difficult to abuse someone who is well surrounded.
