Sexual Abuse:

No one wants to believe that sexual abuse is a concern in a nursing home setting, but sadly, it is. It may even happen more often than you think. Sexual abuse can be committed by the staff, but also by other residents/patients. Even visitors to the facility may commit sexual abuse as well.

Financial Abuse:

Financial abuse is a form of abuse that many people do not always consider. Unfortunately, older people, especially those who are sick, are easy marks in some instances. Part of this is because they are relying on others to do simple tasks for them, like banking. Less-than-honest staff may steal a patient’s financial information. Financial abuse can also take place when providers charge unreasonably high prices or unnecessary expenses.
