Health is a bigger issue as our bodies become frail as we get older. To have constant medical supervision and the care they require, many Houstonians moved into assisted living facilities. Sometimes these homes for the elderly are abusive and negligent in their duties.
Elderly abuse often goes unnoticed. When of a certain age, the ability to care for and protect yourself from harm may be diminished. When your loved one is entrusted in the hands of the caretakers at an assisted living home, you risk abuse, theft, and general lack of care. If you or a loved one fall victim to this nursing home abuse, call The Dwyer Law Firm immediately. Some signs of assisted living failure are:
Early signs of dementia
Marks on ankles and wrists
Lack of food or water/ loss of weight
Subpar bedroom quarters
Mysterious Account withdrawals
Signs of sexual abuse
Elderly abusers can be deceptive and subtle. If you suspect or know of anyone suffering of assisted living mistreatment, or even negligence, please call the attorneys at The Dwyer Law Firm in Houston.
