Why You May Need to Worry about Your Dad in a Kentucky Nursing Home

Request Your Free Consultation

For every 100 women who live to the age of 100, there are only about 21 men who live to the same age. Many of the women who may reach this milestone birthday do so in nursing homes, while a CBS News Report indicates that the men who reach this big birthday often do so in private households. For these reasons, you may be more likely to be visiting your mother or grandmother than your father or grandfather when you visit a Kentucky nursing home. However, that won’t always be the case, and your father, grandfather, or other loved one may be vulnerable.

Men Are Not Invulnerable to Kentucky Nursing Home Abuse

You remember your father, grandfather, or uncle as being so strong. He always protected you. He commanded authority and respect. It is unbelievable to you that he may now be vulnerable instead of respected. Yet the physical, emotional, and financial abuse that occurs to females in Kentucky nursing homes can also happen to males. Specifically, your loved one may be at risk of:

  • Falling.
  • Suffering bedsores.
  • Physical abuse.
  • Malnutrition.
  • Medication errors.
  • Psychological abuse.
  • Other forms of abuse.

The tables have turned. Your loved one is now counting on you to command authority and respect. He is counting on you to protect him.
