Elder Abuse: Common Forms

Elder abuse frequently takes place in nursing homes, hospitals, or long-term care centers, where the elderly can be victimized by caretakers or others working in the facility. Understanding the most common forms of abuse will help you know what to look for. Some common varieties of abuse include: 

  • Physical abuse – A sadly common type of abuse, physical abuse is often demonstrated by bruising, scars, broken bones, or other outward signs of abuse.
  • Emotional or psychological abuse – Signs that you’re loved one is being abused may include mood swings, social isolation, or symptoms of post-traumatic stress. 
  • Sexual abuse – Sexual abuse can occur in situations in which a caretaker or fellow resident takes advantage of your loved one’s vulnerability.
