Take Notes

Document anything that seems out of the ordinary, whether it’s bruises, unexplained falls, weight loss, or dirty clothes. Be sure to keep careful records of the abuse.

Ask Questions

Speak privately with your loved one and inquire about the signs of abuse. Keep in mind that seniors may be afraid to report their abuse, especially when asked in front of their abuser. You may need to ask questions away from management or staff members to get the truth.

Call 911

If you find that physical threats or assaults are taking place, call 911 for immediate help. 

Notify Facility Managers

Be sure to tell facility managers of the abuse that's taking place so they can take the necessary steps to protect the nursing home residents and prevent the abuse from happening again.

Elder Abuse Is More Common Than You Think

According to the National Council on Aging, one in 10 Americans over the age of 60 have experienced some form of elder abuse. One study estimates that 96% of cases go unreported. Just because you assume your loved one is living in a safe nursing home doesn’t mean mistreatment can’t happen. When it does, you need an attorney who can help make things right.
