What Is Elder Care Abuse?
Elder Abuse can take many forms and it is common for an elderly person to be a victim of multiple types of mistreatment, including, but not limited to:
- Physical Abuse
- Emotional Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
Some signs of elder care abuse may be overt and easy to determine, such as bruises or other obvious, physical injuries, while other signs may be far more difficult to determine. Warning signs of elder care abuse may include the following:
- Bruises, pressure marks, broken bones, abrasions, and burns
- Poor hygiene, unattended medical care, bedsores, and unusual weight loss
- Sudden change in alertness, or unusual depression
- Tension between the caregiver and the elderly patient
The staff of The Law Offices Of Joseph Younes, P.C. will work with you so as to determine whether an elderly person has been the victim of abuse, decide on the proper course of action and quickly reach a resolution.
