Homecare Agencies Help Preventing Senior Abuse
Every year, thousands of Americans over the age of 65 have been subject to some form of abuse or neglect. Seniors can become victims of abuse for a wide variety of reasons. Your loved one could be physically, emotionally, or sexually abused which can take the form of exploitation, such as fraud or theft, or may have been neglected or abandoned by care takers or medical professionals.
Signs of Senior Abuse
• Physical: broken bones, unexplained injuries, drug overdoses and signs of restraint.
• Neglect: dehydration, unusual weight loss, malnutrition, being unbathed or dirty, bed sores, unsuitable clothing, and unsafe living conditions.
• Emotional: behavior that depicts dementia such as rocking or mumbling as well as being unwilling to discuss how they’re feeling and being treated.
