Elder Abuse

Common violations constituting elder abuse include:

  • Wrongful Death
  • Bedsores / Decubitus Ulcers
  • Malnutrition or Dehydration
  • Bone Fractures
  • Physical Assault
  • Financial Abuse
  • Mental Abuse
  • Neglect

It’s the sad reality of our society that the elderly are one of the most heavily targeted demographics for abuse. Abuse is generally thought to encompass only physical abuse. Yet, beyond physical harm, there also exists emotional, financial and sexual abuse. Such neglect and mistreatment puts elders at risk of serious injury or, possibly, death.

As your loved ones become older, it can become more and more difficult to protect them from abuse. Losing physical strength or mental acuity, along with other health problems can leave your elderly relative and friends susceptible to abuse or neglect from professional caregivers and, tragically, family members.

SLF is a powerful advocate for the elderly who cannot advocate for themselves. Through the use of expert investigators and extensive discovery, we will set out to find, prove and stop any abuse that an elderly or dependent adult is subjected to in a hospital, nursing facility, residential care facility, or by a family member.
