How can you tell if your loved one is being treated poorly?

Even though your loved one has been in a New York nursing home for quite some time now and you did adequate research before deciding where to house him or her, you are starting to suspect that something is wrong. However, it is difficult to tell if your judgments are justified and your loved one is okay. Fortunately, there are warning signs that you can watch to help you recognize when better care should be provided. 

One of the most useful things you can do is to visit with your loved one on a regular basis and ask him or her about how living at the facility has been. Inquire about whether or not the food is good, if adequate medical care is being given, if there is timely and proactive assistance provided with day-to-day tasks and if there is a lively and fun social environment. If your loved one refuses to share any details with you or seems unable to answer your questions honestly, it may be a red flag and one that indicates that you should take a closer look at what is happening behind closed doors. 

According to U.S. News, some of the signs that your loved one is being treated poorly include the following:

  • Staff avoids answering your questions or downplays your concerns about your loved one's care. 
  • Your loved one appears to not be eating or drinking enough and is lethargic and malnourished. 
  • Speaking with or visiting your loved one gives you a bad feeling and your conscience tells you that something is amiss. 
  • You notice that turnover is high among the staff and the people you do see appear to be unorganized, distracted or frantic.
  • You recognize visible changes in your loved one's demeanor, personality or physical appearance.
