Retirement Home Abuse

Orlando FL Retirement Home Abuse Attorneys

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

Assisted Living Abuse And Neglect

Though residents of assisted living facilities (ALFs) may require help and care from others, this should not put them in a position to lose their dignity and well-being. Burnetti, P.A. understands that placing a loved one in an assisted living facility is an emotional choice, based upon the promise of improved quality of life, treatment and care. When this promise is broken and a resident endures abuse, neglect or mistreatment at the hands of those entrusted with their care, attorneys at Burnetti, P.A. seek justice for the vulnerable victim.

Neglect and abuse can take many forms and may include physical, verbal and sexual abuse. Warning signs may include:

  • Bedsores (also known as pressure sores)
  • Bruises
  • Broken bones
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Poor hygiene
  • Soiled bedding
  • Frequent crying
  • Withdrawal or fear
