The Difference Between Nursing Homes & Assisted Living Facilities
Nursing homes generally provide intensive medical care, treatment, and supervision to patients without offering much freedom or independence. On the other hand, assisted living facilities offer less intensive services, but they allow patients to enjoy more freedoms and choices. For elderly patients who need help with some daily tasks but still want to live independently, an assisted living facility may be an option.
Signs Your Loved One Is Being Abused or Neglected
There are many warning signs you can look for to detect abuse or neglect at an assisted living facility. Our firm will discuss your options for filing a claim against negligent or abusive individuals. We will conduct a thorough investigation, gather evidence, and tenaciously represent you from start to finish.
Signs of abuse include:
- Unexplained bruises, welts, and cuts

- Depression or anxiety

Abuse can be physical, emotional, or sexual. Physical abuse involves hitting, slapping, pushing, spitting on, or otherwise acting violently against a person. Emotional abuse involves yelling at, belittling, threatening, manipulating, or using other verbal tactics to demean a person. Sexual abuse involves groping, touching, raping, or otherwise sexually exploiting a person.
