Caring For Elderly Relatives In South Jersey Since 1983

At Hoffman DiMuzio, we are proud to serve and protect all clients. This is especially true for our elderly clients who are taken advantage of far too often today.

Elder abuse cases can be the cause of several different factors, ranging from an individual’s characteristics and circumstances, to larger societal forces which can heavily influence how the elderly are treated and cared for.

Further, abuse can come in many forms ranging from physical or emotional, to financial and other forms. By understanding and recognizing the factors that contribute to elder abuse, and the warning signs of its occurrence, you can better protect your elderly loved ones from harm.

How To Find A Good Nursing Home Or Caregiver

For those exploring the prospect of moving a loved one into a nursing home or elderly residence, it is vital that you investigate the potential facilities before you make a decision. For those looking in New Jersey, a good place to start is at the link to State of New Jersey’s Health Facilities Reports and Guides, where you can also find the Federal Five Star Rating System. These essential tools can help narrow your search of facilities that meet your standards.

From there, you should visit the potential facilities to get a feel for them yourself. Speak with the doctors, nurses, and staff who would be caring for your loved one. Discuss with them how they would be able to assist with and accommodate for the specific characteristics and circumstances encountered by your loved one.

Elderly abuse is often not intentional, but instead is the result of inattention and lack of support due to understaffed facilities. Moreover, it is important to speak with residents who can give an invaluable perspective on the facility.

Important Signs Of Elder Abuse And Neglect

Approximately 1 in 10 people over the age of 60 have experienced some form of elder abuse, while as little as only 1 in 14 cases of abuse are reported to authorities.[1] Often it may be up to a friend or loved one to recognize and report the abuse in order to protect the abused.

Signs of abuse can vary tremendously, as abuse can leave physical signs, usually when physical or sexual in nature, to emotional/psychological abuse which may only leave signs that can be difficult to identify.

Physical signs of abuse include everything from bruises, cuts, and broken bones, to bedsores, rashes, and other signs of neglect.

Signs of emotional abuse are more difficult to recognize, but often can be seen in elders who show sudden mood changes, depression or even low self-worth. Sexual abuse often shows signs of both.

Additionally, be watchful that the needs of your loved one are not being ignored, and that they are receiving necessary medicine, proper nutrition, and good hygiene.
