Turn to us to prove nursing home neglect and abuse

You've been married for over 40 years when you begin to suspect that your spouse may be suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. When the doctor's diagnosis confirms your suspicions, you realize that for your spouse's continued safety and well-being, they need to be transitioned to a facility that is able to care for and monitor them while you work.

Things seem fine at first, but then you start to notice some suspicious signs that your loved one may be neglected or even abused when you are not present. You've noticed small bruises on your spouse's arms, like someone might be tugging on them. Their weight dips precipitously, and you wonder if their caregivers are feeding them manually as needed.

Then, when a certain nurse's aide comes into the room, your loved one cringes and appears frightened of the person.

Could they be being abused?

It certainly is possible. That is a devastating idea, and it can leave you tormented with guilt for placing them in the facility in the first place. But now is the time for fact-gathering and not recriminations.

We can help you present a case for neglect or abuse at a nursing home or other long-term care facility. We better understand the factors that can contribute to nursing home neglect, e.g., short staffing and high staff turnover rates and can further investigate your suspicions.

You may decide that the best course of action is to move your beloved spouse to another facility. But you can still take action against the facility where the abuse or neglect occurred. That can give you the money you need to find more suitable options for your loved one's care and can act as a deterrent to future elder abuse at the nursing home or care center.
