Attorneys Helping Sexually Abused Victims In Nursing Homes in Bridgeport, Stamford, Danbury, Greenwich in Connecticut

According to Connecticut’s Legislative Commission on Aging (CLCA) between 2010 and 2040 the state’s 65 and older population is projected to grow by 57%. This will increase the demand for nursing homes and other forms of elder care. While it is important to invest in building nursing homes, it is far more important to hire the appropriate individuals to work in and manage these establishments. The failure to hire the right people may result in abuse and neglect of the elderly residents.

If you know of an elderly person who has been abused in a nursing home contact our office. We can help. Nursing homes should be held accountable for the abuse and neglect that occurs to residents in their care. Sometimes these elderly victims are ashamed and remain quiet about the abuse or neglect which has occurred to them.

Typical signs of elderly sexual abuse in nursing homes include:

  • Unidentified blood stains on clothing and/or bed sheets
  • Unusual fear and anxiety when a staff member, resident or acquaintance is nearby
  • Unexplained pain
  • Depression, withdrawal and refusal to communicate
