Retirement Home Abuse Lawyers in Florida
A Retirement Home Abuse Attorney Can Bring Justice to Abused and Neglected Residents
Retirement homes are generally multi-unit buildings or communities that allow residents to live independently during their golden years. Though seniors requiring minimal daily medical care and assistance generally reside in retirement homes, many facilities provide programs and medical staff in case residents need assistance with health challenges. Tragically, instead of receiving care that enhances their well-being, residents may be faced with abuse or neglect. When this occurs, the facility and responsible parties should be held responsible for their actions.
Abuse in Senior Living Centers
Retirement home abuse can occur in any retirement facility, regardless of the price that residents pay. The abuse may be verbal, emotional, physical or sexual, and may happen at any time, including when residents are with the staff of the health programs and services intended to improve their well-being. These interactions may happen during:
- Treatment at the home’s skilled-nursing facility
- Transport to doctor’s appointments, errands or activities
- Physical, speech, massage and occupational therapy
- Appointments at the wellness clinic
- Emergency response calls
