Roughly 42 million people in the United States alone are older than 65. Finding the ideal care for a loved one can be a daunting task, especially when they require special care for specific conditions that they may have. With the level of attention their loved ones need, many people turn to nursing homes.
Nursing homes are responsible for providing a safe, clean, and professional environment. Unfortunately not all nursing homes and caregivers are created equal.
A couple facts on nursing home abuse & neglect:
- Around 2 million cases of elder abuse are reported every year.
- About a 3rd of all long term care facilities in the US were sued for abuse in the past 17 years.
Seniors that are staying in a nursing home are usually dependent on their caregivers and may feel isolated simply by not getting the proper attention.
