Understanding the signs of nursing home neglect

Many of us will go through this cycle. Our parents care for us from birth until adulthood, and then we care for our parents as they age and are no longer able to care for him or herself. While it might be ideal for an individual to care for their own parent in their household, this can be especially burdensome when it interferes with the ability to maintain a job, as it can become a full-time job in itself. Thus, many are often faced with the decision to place their aging loved ones in nursing homes.

3 of the most common causes of trucking accidents

Any type of motor vehicle accident is unfortunate, but those involving semi-trucks are usually the worst. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, large truck crashes caused almost 4,000 people to die in 2016. 66 percent of these deaths were passenger car occupants. You and your car do not stand a chance if a massive commercial truck comes barreling towards you. 

Taking action against nursing home neglect and abuse

As loved ones age, we have to make difficult decisions. If it is clear that he or she cannot care for him or herself anymore, it might be time to discuss placement in a nursing home. These facilities are equipped with professionals that can provide the necessary care for them. While there are many reputable nursing homes throughout Kentucky and the entire nation, there are still instances where abuse and neglect occur.

Rear-end car accidents can result in whiplash

You may be stopped at a stop sign, a red light or in congested traffic when, "Bam!" You've been rear-ended by another driver. Such car accidents are, unfortunately, all-to-common in Lexington and nationwide. Some victims of a rear-end accident may be fortunate enough to walk away with nothing more than a few bumps or bruises. However, they should keep an eye on their health over the coming days and weeks, as some more serious injuries might not manifest themselves right away.

What factors increase the risk of nursing home abuse and neglect?

People in Lexington with an elderly loved one may understand just how vulnerable many of these people are when it comes to their health and well-being. It is important that these people receive quality care that allows them to live out the remainder of their life in comfort. Unfortunately, instances of elder abuse do occur, even in nursing homes. The following are some factors that may make a person more susceptible to nursing home abuse and neglect.
