Vulnerable Elderly Adults

Most of us, after living in the same home for many years, become attached to the place and to the independence that it provides. For this reason, many elderly people want to remain in their homes, rather than move to a separate elder care facility, for as long as possible. Elderly residents who stay in their homes and receive home health care services can be just as vulnerable to neglect, abuse and exploitation as nursing home or assisted living residents.

At Lauby, Mankin & Lauby LLP, we have a wealth of experience helping elderly clients and their families seek justice and compensation for elder abuse, neglect and financial exploitation. Our Irvine home health care negligence lawyers will take the time to listen to your situation, advise you as to your rights and options, and fight for the best outcome in your case.

The Risks Involved With Homes Health Care

Many of the risks are the same — sometimes even greater — in the home health care contexts; risks like:

Because the care providers are right in your home, they have greater access to financial information, cash money and other valuables. Further, home health care recipients have less protection against scams and undue influence from outsiders and family members than they normally would in a nursing home.

In terms of physical abuse and neglect, there are fewer witnesses and less supervision in someone’s home compared to in a nursing home or assisted living facility context. There are fewer people to see signs of neglect or elder abuse, like pressure ulcersmalnutrition and dehydration.
