Assisted Living Facility Neglect

Assisted living facilities are places where the elderly can live and receive assistance throughout the day and night, allowing them freedom while still giving them a structured support system with physicians and staff who can monitor them. It’s easier than living with family, and less intensive than a nursing home.

While most assisted living facilities provide excellent care, there are those where, perhaps due to an overworked staff or a tight budget, there is abuse and neglect. This is when patients can wander away and get lost, health problems can go unnoticed, and injuries can occur with no one around to help. But this neglect can easily transform into active abuse, whether it be physical, emotional, sexual, or monetary.
