Here Is What To Look Out For
A vulnerable loved one may be too scared or unable to inform you of the maltreatment they are enduring. For this reason, it is important to recognize the symptoms and signs.
Ill treatment may include:
- Bedsore wounds, bruises and other injuries
- Not answering a resident’s call light
- Restraining a resident without cause
- Withholding food or water
- Resident’s personal hygiene needs going unmet
- Financial exploitation of a resident
Some of these indicators may point to neglect, while others can signal sexual or psychological abuse. If you see a change in the behavior or temperament of your elderly loved one, report it at once.
