How Does Elder Abuse Occur?


How Does Elder Abuse Occur?

Elder abuse is devastating and it occurs all too often. Being mindful of the signs of elder abuse is crucial to spotting and preventing it. It’s also important to understand what contributes to neglect and abuse in nursing home facilities. Unfortunately, often and especially during the pandemic, nursing home staff are facing increasing demands with fewer staff and fewer resources.

Healthcare workers and nursing home staff have always been under many demands, but throughout this pandemic, the fatigue they have endured has taken a toll on the care some elders receive in some facilities. The increased demands and limited resources given to nursing home staff may cause them to also miss signs of neglect or abuse in your loved one. During this time it’s especially important for you to keep a watchful eye on the care your loved one is receiving.
