Many Connecticut residents have elderly relatives who live in nursing homes. For the most part, these facilities provide excellent care for elderly individuals who simply cannot complete some day-to-day tasks because of their advanced age. For some, it is because they have physical limitations. For others, mental issues may cloud their ability to function.

Unfortunately, there are instances of neglect and abuse in nursing homes in Connecticut and throughout the country. When this occurs to your elderly relative, it can be heartbreaking to discover. That is why it is so important to be on the lookout for issues with elderly relatives when you go to visit.

So, what are some of the possible signs that your elderly loved one has suffered abuse or neglect in a nursing home? Well, for starters, keep an eye on their behavior and attitude. Is it different than it usually is? Is your loved one less talkative? Jittery? Short-tempered? These are all signs that your loved one may be experiencing stress related to abuse or neglect. It is also important to be on the lookout for changes in your loved one’s appearance. Does she have bedsores, bruises or other unexplained marks on her body?

Connecticut residents know their loved ones best, so when they go to visit they need to be sure that they notice the signs of abuse or neglect, if they are present. At our law firm, we do our best to help families who are experiencing these stressful issues. For more information, please visit the nursing home abuse and neglect section of our law firm’s website.
