Handling Nursing Home Abuse Cases For Over 30 Years
If you suspect your elderly loved one is being abused in their care facility, our team can take immediate action to protect them and hold the perpetrator accountable. As a family member, it can be difficult to confront the facility on your own about your concerns. In some cases, the individuals you express concerns to may even be the abusers, and it can be difficult to know where to turn.
At DOUMAR | RAINSFORD, we help families investigate their suspicions and uncover what is really going on. Without prompt intervention, your loved one may suffer further abuse and speaking up as soon as possible is vital. We will be the ones you can turn to in order to find answers to your questions and find out where to go from here.
Is Your Family Member A Victim Of Nursing Home Abuse?
Since you are not at the care facility 24/7, it can be challenging to identify the red flags of abuse. The abuser may make active attempts to hide their negligence and even intimidate your loved one into remaining silent.
Here are some things to pay attention to that may indicate negligence:
- More withdrawn than usual
- Unexplained bruises and marks
- Valuable items such as jewelry are missing
- The caregiver will not let you and your loved one be alone
- They are dirty and unkempt
- Money cannot be accounted for
Note that all abuse is not physical. They may be abused financially, emotionally, and sexually. Not all abuse is easily apparent and may take further investigation to get to the root of the matter.
