When it comes to the care of our elderly family members, we want to make sure they are well taken care of. Oftentimes, that may mean moving them to a nursing home or assisted living facility.
It’s never an easy decision to put a loved one in a nursing home or other assisted living facility. You want to make sure your elderly parent, grandparent or other loved one receives the best care possible.
Making the decision to trust the care of an aging loved one to another is an extremely difficult decision. To add to your stress, you hear news stories about the poor treatment of our elderly in nursing homes, ranging from financial exploitation, physical, emotional, and sexual abuse to basic neglect. How do you avoid potential nursing home abuse, ensuring your elderly loved one is safe?
When you need some sort of assisted care for your elderly parent, grandparent, or other adult, you want the best care possible. You trust that facilities such as nursing homes know how to handle health and hygiene issues and can empathize with loneliness and forgetfulness. It is unthinkable that these facilities may be breeding grounds for elder abuse.
However, elder abuse is a serious issue.
Today, June 15th, Nash & Franciskato is acknowledging World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. It’s unfortunate that we actually have to have a day called World Elder Abuse Awareness Day; however, many of our elderly are in care situations where they suffer abuse and neglect on a daily basis.
