Disturbingly, elderly abuse is unfortunately common and on the rise in Nevada and around the world. These include physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, financial/material exploitation, neglect, abandonment, and self-neglect of the elderly.
There are complaints reported against many of these facilities every year for causing injury or even death. Our elderly are one of the most vulnerable groups of people with many already facing forms of dementia, difficulty moving, or other disabilities.
