What to Do When Removing a Loved One from an Abusive Nursing Home

There may come a time when you have to remove an aging loved one from an abusive situation. If you have reason to suspect your loved one is being abused or neglected in their nursing home and your complaints have been met with excuses or indifference from staff members, that time may be upon you.

Here’s what you need to consider when moving your loved one elsewhere:

  • They will need alternative care. You likely moved them into a nursing home or skilled nursing facility because they required a level of care that you could not provide for them or that they could not provide for themselves. Home health care and companion care may be good options (and are often covered, at least in part, by most major insurance providers) if you intend to move your family member into your home or back into their own home.
  • There may be better options nearby. Do as much research as you can beforehand into other local assisted living and skilled nursing home options. Leaving a nursing home is already highly stressful for patients and their families, but moving directly into another facility where they can immediately receive the specialized care they need may be a better option for elders with complex medical problems.
  • Prosecuting your loved one’s abusers is critical. Whether due to negligence, abuse by an individual, understaffing, or any other form of nursing home abuse, the same harm that has befallen your loved one will surely befall others if allowed to persist unchecked.
