Answer:

If you have an elder loved one living in a Texas nursing home or adult care center, it is vital that you are familiar with the signs of nursing home neglect:

  • Bedsores or pressure sores.
  • Frozen joints – your loved one is not often moved from bed or turned.
  • Over medication – your loved one seems drugged or vacant.
  • Unnecessary restraints.
  • Malnutrition and weight loss.
  • Dehydration and thirst.
  • Long waits before being able to visit your loved one.
  • Dirty clothing or bed sheets.
  • An unclean or unsanitary environment.
  • A sudden change in your loved one’s demeanor.
  • Unkempt appearance – such as tangled hair or dirty fingernails.
  • Signs of feces or urine on your loved one’s bed or clothes.
