Sexual abuse.

This includes not only unwanted sexual acts, but also showing the elderly person pornographic material, making her watch sex acts, and forcing her to undress.


Neglect occurs when caregivers fail to fulfill their duty to provide needed care. This includes not assisting patients with eating when they are at risk of choking, as well as ignoring residents who need assistance using the restroom, so they do not fall. The neglect can be intentional or unintentional.

Financial abuse.

Financial abuse involves the use of the elderly resident’s money or property without permission. Staff members may steal money or property, forge signatures on checks or other legal documents, or steal the resident’s identity.
