  • Bedsores
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Undiagnosed medical conditions
  • Overmedication
  • Falls
  • Significant weight loss
  • New or worsening infection
  • Poor personal hygiene or filthy bedsheets
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)

In extreme cases, the neglect of a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility could even result in death. Don’t wait to speak with someone to determine if you have a reason to be concerned.
