Elder Abuse Takes Many Forms
The abuse of older people is not just physical. Neglect, financial exploitation and psychological abuse are all forms of mistreatment that the elderly can experience. If you are suffering from any kind of abuse, our office will diligently work to protect you.
A protective order, also called a restraining order, legally requires an abuser to stop harming and interacting with an abused person. The order can also make the abuser leave a shared dwelling and not interact with minor children who live in the home. If the abuser refuses to follow the protective order, they may face legal penalties such as fines and a jail sentence.
Elder Abuse In Care Facilities
Unfortunately, abuse in assisted living and long-term care facility is a widespread problem. You can get a protective order if you or your loved one is experiencing abuse or neglect from staff members at an assisted living facility. Our team has worked in the elder care industry for years, and we have helped many abused people find safe care facilities.
