Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse in Lynchburg
Ensuring Your Loved Ones Are Treated with Compassion & Respect
One of the most common and difficult choices to make regarding elderly
family members revolves around whether or not to place them in a nursing
home. Every day, families across the country make this decision, and place
the medical care and attention to daily needs of their loved ones in the
hands of a professionally trained staff. Understandably, they fully expect
that the family member who has been placed in the nursing home will be
treated with the respect, compassion, and care they deserve.
Signs of Elder Neglect & Abuse
Unfortunately, the staff and management at nursing care facilities often
fail to live up to the standard of care that they are held to. When this
occurs, the elderly may become victims of neglect or abuse. This occurs
more often than many think, but it should, in no way, be tolerated.
