Spot the warning signs of elder abuse and neglect

For many families, the decision to entrust an elderly or disabled loved one to the professionals at a nursing or care facility can be incredibly difficult. You expect nurses, physicians and other care providers to be attentive, professional and to ultimately provide your loved one with assistance they need in a respectful, dignified manner.

Nursing Home Abuse: Recognize The Signs

When we make the difficult decision to place our parents in nursing homes, we want to be certain they will be treated well. It is not easy to trust strangers to care for our moms and dads, and it is important not to do so blindly.

Illinois Is Failing Nursing Home Residents

Roughly 1.5 million people currently reside in nursing homes across the United States. By 2023, that number is expected to rise by 40 percent. The health and safety of nursing home facilities will only grow in importance as the population of the U.S. ages. According to a recent review of nursing home care in all 50 states, Illinois is failing to provide an acceptable level of care. Illinois was one of eleven states to receive an F from the nonprofit elder advocacy group, Families for Better Care. The grade was based on 2012 data detailing staffing, inspections, deficiencies and complaints collected by the federal government.
