Answer:

Although emotional abuse is certainly not as overtly harmful as physical nursing home abuse or neglect, psychological abuse is a growing problem in Texas nursing homes and can lead to your elderly loved one suffering from low self-esteem, lowered quality of life, anxiety, and depression. In addition, emotional abuse in nursing homes often goes hand in hand with neglect and physical abuse. Emotional abuse can take on many forms, including verbal abuse, humiliation, intimidation, threats, harassment, erratic behavior, and deprivation. Many fear that the instances of elder emotional abuse will increase as funding is cut in many nursing homes and staff members become increasingly stressed and overworked.
