Since your loved one may not be able to communicate to you that they are experiencing abuse in their nursing home, there are warning signs that you should look for that could indicate abuse. Signs of physical abuse can be bedsores, unexplained injuries, and stained or soiled clothing. A change in your loved one’s behavior can also be an indicator of nursing home abuse. Also, you should be suspicious if the staff does not let you see your loved one at a certain time or does not allow you to be alone with them. Another sign of abuse is if you notice that there are changes in your loved one’s finances or if some of their belongings are missing.
