Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Archives

Abuse in a nursing home: How can I legally fight for my family?

The elderly often choose to make nursing homes their new homes in order to ensure that they receive appropriate care. These types of facilities in Wisconsin often provide positive environments and experiences for their residents. However, this is not always the case.

Staff Shortage at Assisted Living Facility

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are very expensive. When you are paying a lot of money to have someone taken care of, you expect that they will be taken care of correctly and all of their needs will be met. An assisted living facility, Prairie Ridge, located in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin is facing allegations of poor care for their residents and staff shortages.

Do not neglect these signs of nursing home abuse

When you realize that the care an elderly loved one needs exceeds the capabilities of you and other family members, you may search for a nursing home you believe puts their care and safety first. Sadly, no matter how much effort you put into finding a home, you never get a guarantee of your aging family member's safety. The problem of nursing home neglect and abuse remains a problem here in Milwaukee and around the country.

Helping your parent recover from nursing home abuse

As an adult child of an elderly parent in Kenosha, you've likely gone through many phases of adjustment after deciding that residing in a nursing a home was in his or her best interests. From serious physical or mental health conditions to urgent situations that develop after surgery, your reasons may be personal yet akin to others who have faced similar circumstances in the past.

Finding a Good Nursing Home

When a loved one becomes unable to live on their own safely, it is sometimes necessary for them to enter into a nursing home. It can be very stressful and nerve-racking to find the right nursing home for your loved one. You'll likely want to ensure that your loved one will be safe and happy in the nursing home.

More Elder Abuse Due To Sharing Photos On Social Media

If you saw the national news story about a Wisconsin nursing assistant sharing nude photos of an elderly patient on social media, you were probably disgusted. The eldery are to be respected, not made a mockery of at their most vulnerable.

What are the signs of Nursing Home Neglect?

When placing a loved one in a nursing home we hope for them to receive the best care possible. Sadly there are many cases where the nursing homes fail to give the level of care that loved one deserves which can lead to overlooking and ignoring patient problems which lead to nursing home neglect. Nursing home neglect is one of the main forms of nursing home abuse and it is important that loved ones be aware of the signs of nursing home neglect in order to ensure their loved one is being properly cared for.
