MINNESOTA NURSING HOME NEGLECT & ABUSE
Nursing home abuse and neglect are far too common in the United States. The Nation Center of Elder Abuse estimates that as many as one to two million seniors over 65 years old have been abused by those who they depend on for their care. With the senior citizen population in the U.S. rapidly growing, the incident of elder abuse and neglect are expected to increase as well.
Many seniors living in care facilities are unable to communicate any abuse, and since many do not have friends or relatives to visit them regularly, countless incidents of abuse go unreported. If a friend or loved one is living in a nursing home or other facility, visit them frequently and pay attention to anything that seems amiss.
