Their advanced age often brings many different physical and mental ailments that can make them susceptible to being taken advantage of. Sometimes, this occurs in a place that should be a safe haven for seniors -- nursing homes or elder care facilities. Nursing home abuse is a far-too-common problem in Connecticut that unfairly targets those who may not be able to help themselves. If you have a loved one living in a nursing home that might have suffered abuse, you may not know exactly what it is or how to recognize it, but the following information may answer some of your questions.
