Signs My Loved One Is Being Abused or Neglected
If you don’t know what to look for, you could miss the signs that your loved one is experiencing abuse or neglect in their long-term care facility. This can delay you getting them the help that they need, which puts them in even more danger the longer they experience the mistreatment. Not only can abuse and neglect affect the physical health of an elderly resident, but also can harm their mental and emotional health and cause any conditions to decline.
That’s why it’s crucial to know what to be looking for when you speak with and visit your older loved one in their nursing facility—being able to identify the signs of abuse and neglect can help you intervene and take action faster. Here are some of the telltale signs that your elderly family member is experiencing abuse in their nursing home:
- Unexplained bruises and broken bones
- Bed sores
- Dehydrated and malnourished
- Poor personal hygiene
- Soiled sheets and linens
- Messy room
- Change in behavior
- Trouble communicating
- Becoming withdrawn
- Not being allowed alone when visiting or on the phone
- Medication errors
- Missing valuables
- Changes in accounts and estates
- Unexplained STDs and genital injuries
These signs listed above are some of the most common and easy to spot signs of abuse that your loved one could be showing. When you pay attention to their actions and changes in behavior, you’ll be able to tell that they aren’t getting the care and treatment they deserve in their long-term care facility. As soon as you recognize one of these signs, it’s important that you take action to get them to safety and get justice.
