Greenfield Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer

Trusting a nursing home to take care of your elders is never an easy task. Families are often giving a lot just by placing their faith in these nursing homes, hoping they will look after the people, who raised them, with the appropriate level of care and supervision. When this trust is broken and elders are neglected, they may face many severe physical and psychological consequences, such as starvation or depression. Nursing homes are not inexpensive; frequently, elderly people spend roughly a quarter of their yearly expenditures on health care. When their life savings are spent on neglectful nursing homes, elderly people deserve compensation for what very well may have been their lives.

Consequences of Nursing Home Neglect

Many elderly people across the nation suffer from loneliness due to their impaired mobility. This remains a primary reason for elderly people to choose living in a nursing home community. Elderly people require a lot of assistance both medically and emotionally in order to thrive and many of them are willing to pay large amounts for this assistance. However, when elders in nursing homes are neglected by the caretakers they rely on for their quality of life, devastating consequences can occur. Some of the most common consequences include:

  • Depression
  • Psychological trauma
  • Dehydration
  • Starvation
  • Anxiety
  • Dissociation

The psychological damage caused by neglect can have serious adverse effects on elderly people. These injuries can take years to recover from and, unfortunately, many elderly people may not have the years left that are necessary to fully recover from intense psychological trauma created by long-term neglect.
