Sexual Abuse And Molestation Occurring In Nursing Homes
Sexual abuse to the elderly is more common that people might think, but unfortunately goes unnoticed or unreported. The victims may also be suffering from memory loss, confusion or communication problems, which can prevent them from reporting the abuse. If you suspect that an elderly loved one may be a victim of elder sexual abuse in a nursing home or other residential care facility, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer for help.

Abusers Target Elderly People Who Are Most Vulnerable
Elder sexual abuse can accompany multiple forms of mistreatment against a very vulnerable population. It can include physical abuse, such as hitting, punching, kicking or choking, and emotional abuse, such as threatening, intimidating and confinement.
The actual sexual abuse can be anything from molestation to inappropriate touching to inappropriate photographs and Internet posts. And often the abuser tricks, manipulates or coerces the elderly person into sexual contact, particularly if they are unable to communicate that these actions are unwanted.
