- Financial Abuse and Nursing Home Facilities
As the American population gets older in general, more and more people will need the help of assisted living facilities or nursing homes to make sure that they are properly cared for as they enter their golden years. Unfortunately, the reality of this ever-increasing demand has stretched many operations thin to the point where their hiring diligence has suffered and the quality of care has taken a decided downturn.
One of the most serious problems faced by residents and families is that of financial abuse. Anyone who’s suffered through this sort of ordeal needs the immediate help of an Arizona elder abuse lawyer.
Nursing Home Financial Abuse is Real and Prevalent
When people hear the term ‘nursing home abuse,’ most think of the most obvious examples that tend to get the most media coverage – physical and emotional abuse. While these forms of nursing home abuse deserve the same accountability as any other crime or personal injury claim, financial abuse is also happening in high numbers.
It’s also very troubling because there are not generally outward signs that such a form of abuse is even occurring. This can lead to long-term silent suffering by the resident of a facility.
How to Help Minimize the Risk of Nursing Home Financial Abuse
There are a few steps you can take to minimize the chances that such a form of abuse will befall someone you love. First, you’ll need to help manage that person’s overall financial situation so that you’ll notice any irregularities. If you do notice something that simply doesn’t add up, such as regular withdrawals that cannot be explained by the resident or large chunks of money suddenly disappearing from accounts, you should take this as a serious warning sign that something is drastically wrong.
Even if there is nothing seriously wrong, it’s always better to be safe than sorry in these situations. If you feel that someone you love is suffering from this form of abuse, contact a Phoenix personal injury attorney at Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.

I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team.
