    Warning Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
    Larry Lehmbecker and Dad in 2012

    I’ve Been There

    As the son of an aging parent I understand firsthand the stress and guilt that can come along with having to make the choice to put your mother or father in a nursing home. (Even though those feelings can be coupled with a feeling of relief if you have carried some of the burden of being a caretaker.)

    The Reality

    Unfortunately, the reality is that even the best nursing homes don’t have perfect track records. We assume the staff is attentive, careful, kind, and responsive to its nursing home residents. However, accidents happen, protocols get broken, homes become understaffed and our parents and loved ones can be neglected or injured.

    As Your Parent’s Advocate

    It’s important to notice the signs of neglect so that you can hold the nursing home accountable and ensure your parent remains healthy and happy.

    Warning signs of nursing home neglect include:

    –      Sudden weight loss

    –      Bedsores, or pressure ulcers

    –      Injuries from falls

    –      Dehydration

    –      Malnutrition

    –      Unusual changes in behavior

    –      Issues with personal hygiene

    –      A growing distaste or fear of the nursing home staff

    How to report nursing home neglect or abuse:
