Another new article, http://www.nursinghomelawfirm.org/elder-abuse-lawyer, examines what elder abuse is. While many people believe that it only takes place at a nursing home or other care facility; unfortunately, it can also happen in the elderly person’s own home. Sadly, the article notes, family members, neighbors and other trusted caregivers have been known to harm the frail seniors who are under their care. In addition to physical abuse, including hitting or drugging the elderly person, elder abuse also includes emotional abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse and neglect.
“Perhaps the most insidious form of elder abuse, [neglect] involves leaving the person unattended so that they are isolated, hungry, dehydrated and at risk,” the article notes.
