NATIONAL – One of the most iconic scenes of Happy Gilmore features Happy’s grandmother as she has recently moved into a new nursing home. The caretaker Hal comes across welcoming and caring when Happy is around, but the moment he leaves, Hal treats the grandmother and her counterparts as prisoners and slave labor.
That bit is funny until it happens to your or your loved one. With over 2 million seniors in nursing homes, elderly people can face any form of abuse, including but not limited to: assault, battery, lack of care of r existing problems, deprivation of food and water, sexual assault, or unnecessary physical restraints (Motley). Moreover, nursing homes that engage in such behaviors are great at masking issues, and if your grandma has memory issues, it may seem impossible to know for sure if your suspicions are correct. Luckily, there are some common signs you can look for if you think your grandmother may be experiencing abuse or neglect.
