Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias

Unfortunately, nursing home staff may take advantage of vulnerable residents, specifically those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. If a negligent nursing home employee has abused your elderly loved one by taking advantage of his or her condition, a Danville nursing home abuse attorney with Spiros Law, P.C., may be able to help you seek both justice and financial compensation.
Common Forms of Abuse
Because dementia often affects its victim’s memory and cognitive abilities, nursing home employees may feel as though they may take advantage of their residents with Alzheimer’s and other dementias and never get caught. As such, the following are the types of abuse that you should watch for if your loved one has dementia
- Physical abuse
- Mental abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse
If your loved one has been placed in a nursing home, you should always be on the lookout for signs and symptoms of mistreatment, and report your suspicions immediately when they appear.
