Emotional Abuse in Nursing Home Awareness

For individuals who are seeking comprehensive medical care and professional assistance maintaining the activities of their day-to-day lives, the services available at nursing homes can be invaluable. Residents of nursing homes expect to be cared for in a way that both preserves their dignity and offers opportunities to grow. Among the benefits nursing homes offer, the sense of community many residents experience can have an especially positive impact on an individual’s sense of wellbeing.

While many people have positive experiences in nursing homes, instances of emotional abuse do occasionally occur. Unlike physical abuse, emotional abuse can be very difficult to prove or substantiate. Further complicating the matter, some individuals in nursing homes suffer from memory impairment or may be otherwise incapable of effectively communicating any wrongs they have suffered. Therefore, identifying common indicators of emotional abuse can be critical to preventing any future abuse.

Common Indications of Emotional Abuse in Nursing Homes

In the unfortunate circumstance that an individual has been emotionally abused, he or she will often display some common signs, including:

  • An uncharacteristic or unexplained shift in behavior
  • A prolonged and unreasonable sense of fear or anxiety
  • A sudden lack of interest in social interaction, or withdrawal

Understanding what commonly indicates emotional abuse can be central to preventing any further abuse and in ensuring that any responsible party is held accountable for its actions. Emotional abuse is never acceptable, and it is particularly troubling when it involves the vulnerable residents of nursing homes.
