The thought of a parent, family member or loved one being abused in a nursing home instead of receiving the care they were promised is sickening. Unfortunately, it’s a sad reality.
According to the World Health Organization, rates of elder abuse are high in institutions such as nursing homes and long-term care facilities. Two in three staff members acknowledge that they have committed abuse in the past year.
The National Council on Aging (NCOA) reports that up to 5 million older Americans are abused every year. They estimate that victims of financial abuse lose at least $36.5 billion annually. The scary part is that the vast majority of elder abuse cases are not reported to the authorities.
