Know the Signs & How to Respond

Chances are, you've suspected something is wrong for a while. Some signs of elder abuse can be difficult to spot to the untrained eye, but if your loved one has been acting strange or skittish, you may want to look into their living conditions.

The elder's caretaker can be accused of neglect if there is evidence of:

  • Broken bones or unexplained bruises
  • Dirty clothes or living conditions
  • The smell of urine in the room or on the patient's clothing
  • Frequent errors with the elder's medication
  • A sudden change in behavior toward his or her caretaker, especially fear or anger
  • Bed sores
  • Poorly maintained indoor climate control (the room is too hot or too cold)

Elder abuse cases often address physical abuse, neglect, sexual abuse, financial exploitation, or psychological abuse. If your elderly loved one is under the care of a family member, you might be hesitant to ask into their condition; however, it is important that you protect the individual, as they may not be able to speak up for themselves.
