Giving Voice to the Defenseless in the Capital District
Unfortunately, many nursing homes have employees that are convicted of elder abuse every year. Knowing this, it may be difficult to put your loved one in a home, knowing you won’t be able to protect them each day. We always recommend our clients listen to their instincts when it comes to nursing homes. If you suspect that your loved one is being abused, reach out to our experienced Albany personal injury attorneys.

Know the Signs & How to Respond
Sometimes, abuse can be obvious. Unexplained bruises, a filthy living space, and regular preventable medical emergencies are often easy to identify, and should always be investigated.
However, the signs of abuse or neglect are not always so easily identifiable:
- Is your loved one suddenly nervous or aggressive?
- Have they withdrawn into themselves, making it difficult for you to talk to them?
- Do they regularly miss meals or medication?
- Do they regularly miss doctors appointments?
- Have you noticed a general lack of personal hygiene in your loved one?
These can be signs of either physical or emotional abuse and require a skilled eye to track and expose those responsible.
Trust Your Instinct & Seek Professional Legal Help
Too often signs of nursing home abuse are dismissed as the side-effects of aging. A nursing home has been trusted with the care and keeping of your loved one. They must be held accountable for their neglect.
