Signs of Elder Abuse or Neglect
Neglect and abuse may not be obvious at first since injuries do happen from time to time, but there are some major signs to look for:
- Bedsores and Bruising — Strange markings or sores do not typically appear without a reason. If there’s no obvious cause for the injury, this could be the result of ignored residents.
- Dehydration or Malnutrition — If your loved one seems to be hungry, thirsty, or simply looks malnourished, this is an immediate sign of neglect. Getting essential vitamins and nutrition is part of a caring, nurturing environment.
- Visible Fear — Your relative should be content and happy if they are in good hands. If he or she seems upset or scared when you visit, it could be a sign of verbal and/or physical mistreatment.
- Unexplained Death or Illness — If your loved one has suddenly passed away or becomes sick without previously having symptoms, it may be time to question the living environment.
