Forms of Elder Abuse
Elder abuse takes many forms. Because of their age, many senior citizens have physical or mental incapacities that make them particularly vulnerable to abuse.
Elder abuse can be:
- Physical: This includes any form of physical assault that causes bodily injury, including sexual assault
- Emotional: An elderly victim could suffer emotional abuse if they are bullied, belittled, isolated, or manipulated
- Financial: Financial abuse includes embezzlement, theft, check fraud, identity fraud, and any other scams or tricks to defraud an elderly victim
Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse
When you help your elderly loved one move into a nursing home, you so do with the expectation that the facility is safe and welcoming. Unfortunately, many nursing homes are short-staffed or unable to provide proper training to staff members. As such, elder abuse frequently occurs in nursing home and assisted living facilities where vulnerable elders are powerless to abusive or neglectful staff members.
At Obenshain Law Group, we take a stand against all forms of elder abuse and refuse to let your loved ones remain in an abusive situation. Allow our elder abuse attorneys to step in and fight for your family.
