Signs of Abuse
Physical abuse can take many forms and can be extremely dangerous for people of advanced age and those with special medical needs. If your loved one is in the care of an assisted living facility, be on the lookout for the following signs of abuse:
- Cuts and bruises
- Broken bones
- Unexplained minor injuries
- Changes in personality
- Unwillingness from facility personnel to allow you time alone with your loved one
Sadly, abuse goes unreported all too often as elderly individuals may be intimidated into silence by their tormentors, or be otherwise unwilling to speak up.
