With regards to physical and sexual abuse, you should always inspect your loved one’s body for bruises, cuts, wounds or scars. While elderly residents are more prone to these injuries, if the injuries are reoccurring that is often a sign of abuse. With regards to mental abuse, this can be more difficult to observe but common symptoms are a change in demeanor and personality of the resident accompanied by withdrawal from others and isolation. With regards to neglect, similar injuries can serve as symptoms as well as dramatic weight loss and non-existent hygiene. Lastly, pertaining to financial exploitation, you should monitor your family member’s finances, examining bank statements for checks being written to and gifts being given to nursing home staff.
