Seniors living in nursing homes can easily become the targets of thieves and fraudsters. As the elderly age and their capacities decline, they are vulnerable to all types of abuse. While the popular perception is that the abuse of seniors is primarily physical and emotional, there are different types of abuse that seniors face.
The problem is even more pronounced in nursing homes. Financial abuse in nursing homes is unfortunately all too common, notwithstanding regulations that are aimed at preventing it. When that happens, a nursing home financial abuse lawyer can help file a lawsuit to recover what was lost as well as assist families in taking steps to make sure that the abuse does not happen again.
