San Diego Elder Neglect Victims Attorneys

Representation for Victims of Elder Neglect

Every year, thousands of elderly San Diego residents are neglected in their own homes, in relatives' homes and even in facilities responsible for their care. Nursing homes and family members have a duty and obligation to their elders to provide full-time care and medical treatment to those who cannot take care of themselves. When they fail to do this, elder neglect occurs and an elder's health is put at risk. Elder neglect can be active, like withholding food, water, or medicine from an elder, or passive, such as ignoring or being in denial of an elder's needs.

Where Does This Happen?

It is become extremely demanding to care for an elder, and so, many older Americans are being cared for by others outside of their immediate family, either by hired help or in long-term care facilities. Though elder neglect happens on several occasions in nursing homes, it most often occurs in the home, by adult children, grandchildren, or spouses of elders.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Elder Neglect?

  • Unusual weight loss, malnutrition, dehydration
  • Untreated physical problems, such as bed sores
  • Unsanitary living conditions: dirt, bugs, soiled bedding and clothes
  • Being left dirty or unbathed
  • Unsuitable clothing or covering for the weather
  • Unsafe living conditions (no heat or running water; faulty electrical wiring, other fire hazards)
  • Desertion of the elder at a public place

How is Elder Neglect Treated?

  • Counseling
  • Proper Diet and Nutrition
  • Intravenous (IV) Infusion of Fluid or Medication
  • Medicines
  • Surgeries or Wound Care
