Helping Accident Victims Focus on Recovery

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.
