Putting your loved one in a nursing home may be one of the hardest decisions you will have to make, but it can be easier if you know what to look for at nursing homes. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse and neglect goes unnoticed or unreported across the state. Make sure your loved one isn’t a victim of abuse by knowing what to look for when visiting him or her.

While we would like to think that nursing home workers would take good care of our loved ones, sometimes abuse and neglect occurs in Kentucky nursing homes. The most obvious type of abuse to spot is physical abuse. The warning signs of physical nursing home abuse includes bruises, cuts, malnutrition, or any type of bodily injury. Some other types of abuse that are more difficult to detect include psychological abuse and sexual abuse. By visiting your loved one often, you may be able to determine if something isn’t right. Another form of abuse is financial abuse. By keeping a close eye on your loved one’s financial accounts, you can help him or her avoid being a victim of theft and abuse.
