Can training help protect your loved one from maltreatment?

When you begin to consider the possibility of finding a nursing home facility for your loved one in New York, it is not uncommon to feel uneasy and even anxious. After all, you will want a facility that meets your requirements and is capable of providing the level of care that you want your family member to have. 

Because maltreatment of the elderly does happen and can take on many forms, it is important that you are aware of signs that could indicate that your loved one is being mistreated. Elder abuse can be physical, emotional and even financial. Perpetrators can be staff members, but also other residents within the facility. When you first visit any of the establishments on your list, be aware of the environment and how each staff member interacts with you and the patients you see. Likewise, observe the level of social activity and the demeanor of the residents. 

The National Centre for Biotechnology Information suggests that education and training play a critical role in helping staff members to understand the risks of elder abuse and to identify when to report specific incidents that could indicate that something is wrong. As you are conducting your own research and looking into the history and customer reviews of certain facilities, look for indications that staff members have received all proper training and certifications. You may even consider asking what types of precautions they take to prevent elder abuse from happening, and what your options are for filing a complaint if you are unhappy with the care that your loved one is receiving.
