Nursing home abuse is the abuse, neglect, or exploitation of the elderly in a nursing home, group home, or care facility.
The abuse generally comes from someone who is paid to provide care for the older person. The elderly can suffer from physical abuse, psychological abuse, neglect or even financial abuse where someone steals or misuses the financial resources of an elderly person.
Nursing home abuse is a major problem in America. The fact is, too many nursing home owners act as if profits are more important than resident care. You have the right to get answers to your questions and to know what options you have.
