What happens if someone hurts my loved one in a nursing home?
Dear Senior Legal Line,
I am very concerned about my husband moving into a nursing home. He is seventy-five, has dementia, and is not as hearty as he once was. My children have been coming to me with different stories from the internet about elder abuse in nursing homes. These stories are so scary. I haven’t been able to sleep a wink in weeks! I’m wondering what would happen if someone hurts him?
