Types of Elder Abuse

Caregivers, nursing homes, and other elder care facilities or institutions have a duty of care to elderly patients and clients. Failing to meet this duty of care whether through negligence or outward abuse is a serious offense.

Elder abuse is often the result of understaffed facilities, untrained workers, or a facility’s poor hiring discretion. It can be physical, mental/emotional, verbal, sexual, or financial.

A few examples of elder abuse include:

  • Physical assault, such as hitting, kicking, or slapping
  • Physically restraining an elder
  • Sexual assault or harassment
  • Fraud
  • Theft
  • Isolation
  • Threats

Warning Signs of Elder Abuse

Though some instances of abuse are outward and obvious, others can be less noticeable. Many elders suffer abuse for weeks or months without their loved ones’ knowledge. That is why it is so important to be on the lookout for red flags or warning signs of abuse.

Potential signs of elder abuse include:

  • Bedsores
  • Wounds, cuts, or broken bones
  • Infections and sudden illnesses
  • Weight loss or weight gain
  • A change in the elder’s personality or mood
  • Dehydration
  • Unsanitary conditions
