One of the worst nightmares is finding a nice home for an aging parent, only to discover that he or she is being mistreated there.
Part of our elder law practice at Brandon Family Law Center, LLC, is to respond to issues of abuse, whether it happens in a nursing home or at the hands of unscrupulous salespeople.
Appalling Examples of Nursing Home Negligence
Abuse at nursing homes and other residences can range from neglect (soiled bedding, bedsores, poor hygiene) to acts that can only be described as sadistic.
Disgraceful Financial Exploitation of Seniors
Financial exploitation occurs when an older person is victimized by fraud and crime. The con may involve investments, insurance, fake charities — anything that takes advantage of your loved one's diminished judgment. Individuals can be victimized by friends or strangers — anyone seeking to cash in on the older person's vulnerability.
