Nursing home residents face financial abuse

Nursing home residents are often able to fund their stay at care facilities through trusts and other accounts that provide periodic payments to the homes. These nursing homes, including those in Chicago, often manage the trusts and accounts that are needed to pay for everyday expenses. An increasing number of investigations show that these facilities may be guilty of nursing home abuse by mismanaging their patients' financial resources. Although we often think of nursing home abuse in terms of physical injuries, these facilities can also cause financial harm to those entrusted to their care.

Vulnerability makes Illinois's ill, elderly sexual abuse targets

Illinois caregivers can take advantage of the direct contact they have with people they are paid to guide or help. Nursing home abuse can be hidden as employees perform routine tasks of washing, dressing or assisting residents. Weak or ill residents may not be capable of resisting an unwanted assault. In some cases, the victims' mental states prevent them from understanding or reporting what happened.
