As sad as it may sound, the elderly are very afraid of reporting abuse, therefore, if you suspect that your loved is being abused, the chances of them telling you are slim. Many nursing home residents believe that there are no better alternatives and that they have to put up with the abuse. The Nursing Home Abuse Guide provides a list of common reasons why nursing home residents choose not to speak about being abused:

  • They believe having an abusive caregiver is better than not having one at all
  • Fear of assisted living facilities
  • Embarrassment of being abused
  • They are fearful of change

Since relying on their word isn’t always the best option, it’s best to be familiar with the signs of abuse. Unfortunately not all of the signs are obvious; however, there are some common indicators of physical abuse. The Disabled Persons Protection Commission provides a list signs that will help with recognizing signs of physical abuse:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Bruises in different stages of healing
  • Human bite marks
  • Fractures
  • Bilateral bruises
  • Small burns in the shape of cigarette marks
  • Burns marks on fingers and toes
  • Burns showing clear line from emersion into hot liquid
  • Scalding burns causing blistering
  • Swelling in the mouth possibly from forced feeding
  • Unexplained internal injuries
  • Abrasion marks
