Families send elderly loved ones to nursing homes to receive the proper round-the-clock care and personal attention the elderly need for their health. This practice is supposed to bring peace of mind. However, a third of nursing home residents suffer abuse. It can be difficult for the elderly to speak up and report it due to disability, fear, isolation or lack of outside support. Therefore, it's important that you know the signs of nursing home abuse so you can put an end to it before it leads to the wrongful death of your elderly loved one.
