Emotional or Psychological Abuse

When we place a loved one in a nursing home, we do so with the belief that our loved one will be treated respectfully and with dignity, and will receive the care they need. Unfortunately, not only are there instances in which nursing home residents are not giving this adequate treatment, but there are also times in which residents are actually subject to abuse, including emotional and psychological abuse. Especially due to the nature of this particular type of abuse, it can have lasting consequences for the victim.

3 Types of Emotional or Psychological Abuse

Emotional and psychological abuse can take many different forms. Generally, any behavior or action that disregards a nursing home resident’s mental or emotional health could be considered emotional or psychological abuse. Three examples of such abuse include:

  • Forced Isolation
  • Degradation or Humiliation
  • Verbal Abuse

Unfortunately, these and other common forms of emotional and psychological abuse all too often cause nursing home residents to suffer serious harm or even permanent damage.
