Elder abuse and nursing home neglect affect seniors from all backgrounds and walks of life. However, some individuals are more at risk than others.
Various studies have shown that elderly individuals with certain physical and mental health conditions, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, are significantly more likely to become victims of nursing home abuse and neglect. Studies have also found that non-white nursing home residents, specifically Black and Hispanic individuals, have a statistically much higher risk of suffering abuse and neglect at the hands of trusted caregivers.
