5 Signs for Identifying Nursing Home Elder Abuse in Sacramento & Folsom CA
Elder abuse is any type of mistreatment that leads to the harming or death of an elder person. There are reportedly over two million elder abuse cases annually which include: neglect, sexual abuse, exploitation, emotional and physical abuse. With over 35 million individuals in the US that are age 65 or greater it is important to be able to catch the signs of elder abuse early before harm is done.
As our population gets older more and more people are relying on nursing home care. Tragically nursing homes are short-staffed which is leading toward more elder abuse in the Sacramento and Folsom, CA areas.

- Unexplained injuries that can not be accounted for.
- Simple needs like food and cleanliness are not being met.
