It can be scary to leave a parent, or any loved one, with dementia in a Kentucky nursing home. You parent’s mind may not be what it used to be, but your mom or dad can still experience pain and fear. You want your parent to get the respect that he or she deserves and not to be taken advantage of because of dementia. How can you make sure that happens and what should you do if your parent with dementia is abused or neglected in a Kentucky nursing home?
Nursing Home Residents With Dementia Deserve to Live Free of Abuse and Neglect
You can help ensure that your parent is safe by:
- Getting to know the nursing home staff.
- Learning the symptoms and signs of nursing home abuse and neglect.
- Stopping by the nursing home unannounced.
- Getting to know other families in the nursing home.
- Promptly following up on any suspicions of abuse, neglect, or theft.
You are not in a position to protect your parent from any possible harm. That is the responsibility of the nursing home. If the nursing home staff has violated your trust and hurt your loved one then it is important to take prompt action to help your parent recover.
