New Mexico Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
People aged 65 and older are the fastest-growing age group in New Mexico. It is projected that by the year 2030, more than 30% of New Mexico’s population will be 60 or older.
These statistics show how important it is to address the widespread issue of nursing home abuse in our country and state. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is an alarmingly common problem with over 40% of residents reporting some form of abuse, whether physical, mental, emotional, or sexual. Victims of nursing home abuse often cannot speak up for themselves or are afraid to do so. The victims are our parents, grandparents, and other beloved elderly relatives. Without help, they are forced to suffer physical injury, trauma, and even death.
Many families agonize over the decision to place an elderly relative in a nursing home in the first place. Families question whether their relatives will be well-cared for, happy and fulfilled in a nursing home setting.
The sad reality is that while families ultimately have their loved one’s best interests in mind, they are often inadvertently putting them in harm’s way. Families put the ultimate trust in nursing homes, and it is inexcusable that this trust is sometimes violated.
