You trust a nursing home to keep your loved one safe. Sadly, these attacks happen much more commonly than we want to admit. Early studies showed that residents self-reported abuse between 1% and 10% of the time. This number is believed to be very low compared to the actual because often victims are afraid to report it.
Sometimes, you can see some signs of abuse if you look carefully. Injuries such as bruises, cuts, scrapes or even broken bones can be a sign. Sudden changes in behavior can be a sign. Fear of leaving the room or of certain people can also be a serious sign.
