It isn’t easy to talk about being a victim. It isn’t easy to look someone in the face and tell them about the horrible things that were done to you. Your parent understandably wants to maintain her dignity and avoid embarrassment. You can help her do just that while she tells a compassionate and understanding Kentucky nursing home abuse attorney what happened.
Learn How to Help Make This Easier for Your Loved One
While pursuing a nursing home abuse case may be important, there is nothing more important than your loved one’s emotional and physical well-being. Before you talk to a nursing home abuse lawyer in Louisville, it is important to determine whether your loved one will be comfortable consulting with an attorney. You may do this by:
- Role playing. Let your loved one experience what it will be like to talk to a nursing home abuse lawyer who wants to help her by role playing with her and playing the part of the attorney.
- Showing your loved one our website. Sometimes, putting a face with a name or reading about past successes or advice for nursing home abuse victims can help calm fears.
- Accompanying your loved one to our meeting. Your loved one shouldn’t have to do this alone. With her permission, you are welcome at our meetings.
It is also important to talk to your loved one about her goals and about the reasons why filing a nursing home abuse case may be important for her, her fellow residents, and others in Kentucky.
