Why does nursing home abuse occur?

It’s a mistaken belief to think that abuse and exploitation of seniors, particularly within nursing homes, doesn’t occur in modern times.

Unfortunately, the harsh reality is that this vulnerable population often becomes an easy target.

Instances of abuse can come from unexpected sources – neighbors, caregivers, and even family or friends. They may misappropriate funds without consent, neglect to repay money they owe, overcharge for services, or fail to provide the promised care.

This financial abuse is a pervasive form of elder abuse, particularly prevalent in nursing homes.

At McIntyre Elder Law, we adopt a determined and proactive stance against nursing home abuse and exploitation. We work to put an immediate stop to the abuse, ensuring the guilty party is held accountable.
