How Common is Nursing Home Abuse?

It’s a sad fact that elder neglect and abuse can occur in all types of environments.

Care homes and nursing homes are not exempt. Sadly, studies have shown that older persons who live in community settings are abused more often than older persons living in other settings.

More than three million older Americans currently live in nursing homes in the country.

There are several levels of care homes, including:

  • Residential living
  • Assisted Living
  • Skilled Care
  • Memory Care
  • Palliative and Hospice Care

Finding a Care Facility for Your Loved One

The decision to place a loved one in a nursing home can be challenging for families. In making that decision, we trust and assume that caregivers will treat our loved ones with compassion, quality care, and dignity.

With Arizona’s large elder population, there is a high demand for care. Choosing a care facility is a daunting task. However, there are resources available to help you decide on the right place for your loved one.

Unfortunately, some companies come to places like Arizona, setting up poorly staffed facilities primarily to make money. Entities may provide low quality, substandard care to maximize profits. The ratio of caregivers to patients may be low, which can lead to lapses in care.
