Bove, Attorney at Law, will fight to hold care facilities responsible for their actions and get you and your loved ones the compensation you deserve.

Signs Of Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
When you entrust an elderly relative to another person’s care, you would expect your loved one to be treated with respect and dignity. Sadly, many nursing homes and other facilities in Delaware that are dedicated to quality senior care fall far short of these expectations. According to HelpGuide, each year there are more than half a million reports of elder abuse in the United States, and even more go unreported. At Beverly L. Bove Attorney at Law, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of senior citizens who need the care of others.
Nursing home abuse or neglect can take many forms. These include physical, verbal, emotional, sexual or financial abuse. Some nursing home staff deliberately mistreat vulnerable older adults, while others are overworked, undertrained or simply negligent in their care. If you have a loved one in a nursing home facility, the following are some of the signs that can indicate he or she is being neglected or abused:
- Changes in the personality of your loved one, including signs of depression, anxiety, fearfulness or withdrawal
- Frequent tension or arguments between your relative and his or her caregivers
- Caregivers refusing to let you visit your loved one alone
- Bedsores or unexplained injuries such as bruises, cuts or fractures
- Dirty bedding and clothing or unsanitary living conditions
- Signs of dehydration or malnutrition
You may also realize that your loved one’s medication is not being administered regularly or in the proper doses, or he or she may tell you things about the caregivers that raise red flags. An elderly relative who is being mistreated is at risk of serious injuries or even premature death.

We Represent All Elder Abuse Victims
Abuse can take a variety of forms, including physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and financial exploitation. Even when there is no physical contact, neglect can lead to dehydration or bedsores, which can result in catastrophic injuries. With more than 60 years of combined experience, we know how to recognize the signs of nursing home abuse that lead to nursing home injuries, and we will fight on behalf of families to get them full and fair compensation.
We Hold Nursing Homes Accountable
When a loved one has been injured in a long-term care facility, it is often not just the individual workers who are responsible. Typically, their actions are a product of the policies put in place by the owners of the facilities. When there are companywide problems such as staffing negligence which may lead to injuries resulting from a fall or dehydration, our dedicated Wilmington personal injury attorneys will fight to hold the businesses in charge accountable.
