Common Forms of Emotional and Psychological Abuse in Dallas Nursing Homes

Since many nursing home residents cannot properly care for themselves due to disability or illness, they are placed in a highly vulnerable position and thus susceptible to emotional and psychological abuse, which can take on many forms, the more common of which include the following:

  • Verbal Degradation – Screaming or yelling at residents, humiliating them, making sarcastic or otherwise hurtful remarks.
  • Verbal Threats – Intimidating or threatening residents who have the right to feel safe in the nursing home.
  • Manipulation – Exploiting a resident's dependency or otherwise manipulating him/her to the point of distress for the sake of gaining some form of advantage.
  • Neglect or Isolation – Withholding necessary goods or services, giving the "silent treatment," or forcing the resident into isolation from friends, family, and desired activities.

If left ignored or undetected for a significant period, these types of abuse can have long-lasting adverse effects on the victim's well-being and happiness.

What Are the Warning Signs of Emotional and Psychological Abuse?

Vigilance is essential to preventing emotional abuse in a nursing home. If you are a friend or family member of a nursing home resident, make sure to visit them frequently and look for any of the following red flags:
