Your Loved Ones Deserve Care, Not Abuse
When family members reach elder status, they deserve our support to retain their dignity in these later years of life. Unfortunately, there are those who will take advantage of elders because the people are vulnerable or not able to protect themselves or their resources from those who would do them harm. No one deserves to be victimized. We can help by representing your elder in their abuse case. Our goal is that your loved one receives retribution for the wrongs done to them.
Elder Abuse Takes Many Forms
Many types of elder abuse exist. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, here are some things to notice that fall into the category of elder abuse.
- An elder could be being exploited financially. If you notice someone’s financial situation changing suddenly, this could be a sign of abuse.
- A nursing home may be guilty of neglect, for example, in causing bed sores because of not turning an elder frequently enough in bed. You may also notice poor hygiene or other unattended needs.
- A vulnerable elderly person could be victimized through sexual or physical abuse. Watch for physical signs such as bruises or broken bones. Sexual assault could be indicated by bruises on private areas.
- If an elder withdraws from normal activity, this could be an indicator of emotional abuse.
If you have an elderly relative who is suffering from one or more of these types of abuse, please contact us. Our goal is to see justice prevail. Abuse should not be tolerated. It should be punished.
