Alzheimer’s Abuse in Washington

Get Experienced & Skilled Legal Representation on Your Side

There are many cases of Alzheimer’s abuse that go unreported and unaccounted for since victims are sometimes unable to communicate or tell anyone about the abuse. Unfortunately, Alzheimer’s patients are more likely to experience abuse compared to other residents in a nursing home because they either require more care and attention, and they are easy targets.

If you believe that your loved one who has Alzheimer’s disease is suffering abuse by his or her caregivers, SGB is prepared to protect the rights of your loved one and pursue the justice he or she deserves. With more than 45 years of collective experience, our Washington nursing abuse lawyers know what it takes to get the best results possible.

Vulnerability of Patients with Alzheimer’s Disease

Considered a form of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease often occurs in old age. Patients with this condition suffer from declining cognitive abilities such as memory and communication impairment.

While most caregivers in nursing homes uphold their duty to provide adequate care, there are some who take advantage and abuse elderly patients with Alzheimer’s. Aggressors target these patients because of their memory impairment, inability to communicate, and because they are prone to be easily confused.

Common indicators of abuse include:

  • Cuts and bruises
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Rapid decline in health
  • Depression or withdrawal
  • Changes in behavior and personality
  • Sudden financial issues

Furthermore, nursing home staff member may take advantage of their patients and start to take money or hide valued items from them. Additionally, even family members of people with Alzheimer’s may take advantage due to having direct access to cash, bank accounts, and other assets.
