How common is elder abuse?

Placing an aging loved one in a nursing home facility has become the norm in Missouri and elsewhere. Family members are often unable to take on the task of caring for an elderly family member on their own, which means they will rely on a nursing home to provide the care and assistance their loved one requires. Finding a good nursing home, however, can be challenging, as nursing home abuse and neglect has become more and more concerning across the nation.

Helping you address concerns of nursing home abuse

We all age and it is a part of life that we must accept. Nonetheless, many of us are not prepared to deal with what comes with a longer life expectancy. While residents in Missouri and elsewhere attempt to accommodate and help aging loved ones, the reality is that many are unable to take on this task. Because of this, nursing home facilities are relied on to provide the care a loved one requires.
