Many older citizens have no other option but to move into nursing facilities and long-term care homes to receive the assistance they require to maintain their health and hygiene. Because of their deteriorating physical and mental conditions, these elderly residents place all of their needs in the hands of caregivers. Unfortunately, nursing home neglect, mistreatment and abuse is all too common, especially at facilities with inadequately trained staff and unqualified caregivers.
