As the number of senior citizens in the United States grows, the ability to provide adequate care for those in need is becoming more difficult. Approximately 28% of senior citizens live alone and have fewer family members who are willing or able to provide care. Even those who do have family members who are willing to provide them with the care they need are not always able to accept their help. Certain health problems require the care of medical professionals, leading to some seniors being placed in nursing homes. These facilities are designed to provide care and support, but our older population is at risk of being abused by those who are supposed to take care of them. If you are concerned about the well-being of your loved ones, watch out for these five signs of nursing home abuse.
