Your loved one is in a difficult position. The people she trusted to take care of her in a Kentucky nursing home ended up being the ones who caused her injury through abuse or neglect. Now, she is being asked to talk about what happened to her and to trust a Louisville nursing home abuse lawyer. This can be extremely difficult for the victim of abuse or neglect, and your loved one may appear anxious prior to her first meeting with an attorney.
Here’s What You Can Do To Help
You certainly don’t want to see your loved one suffer any more anxiety or stress over what has happened, yet you know that it is important for her to consult with a Louisville nursing home abuse attorney to make sure that her legal rights are protected. Accordingly, before the first meeting, you can:
- Tell your loved one what to expect. Sometimes fear of the unknown is worse than the actual meeting.
- Show your loved one the website of the attorney you are going to meet. Sometimes putting a face with a name or hearing the words used by a lawyer can lower a person’s anxiety level.
- Reassure your loved one that you will be there every step of the way.
Together, you and an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer in Louisville can reassure your loved one, make her comfortable, and hold those responsible for the abuse or neglect accountable.
