Types of Elder Abuse

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), hundreds of thousands of adults ages 60 and over are abused, neglected, and financially exploited each year. The following is an overview of the most common types of elder abuse. If you suspect that your loved one is a victim of abuse, call our Orange County elder abuse lawyers immediately to discuss your options.

Physical Abuse

Considered the most common form of abuse in U.S. nursing homes, physical abuse consists of hitting, scratching, biting, or other types of physical harm inflicted by staff members. The consequences of physical abuse can include cuts, bruises, broken bones, scarring, fear, and depression.

Sexual Abuse

Due to the physical and mental vulnerability of seniors, a staggering number experience sexual abuse. Female residents are more likely to be victims of sexual abuse than their male counterparts. Sadly, only approximately 30 percent of sexual abuse cases are reported. Physical signs of sexual abuse include bleeding from the genital area, bruises in the groin area, broken bones, and STDs.

Emotional/Psychological Abuse

Mental abuse can also cause significant harm to residents. Staff members typically use cruel language to degrade seniors or verbal threats to make them more obedient and/or prevent them from reporting abuse. Emotional abuse can cause anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and mood swings.

Financial Abuse

More and more residents are being financially exploited by caregivers who steal money and credit cards or forge checks from their accounts. Some staff members force patients to change their will or sign over their property rights. However, financial exploitation can also be caused by other family members.
