Adult Day Care Abuse

Adult Day Care Abuse Attorneys in California

Contact Our Knowledgeable Legal Team

Adult day care (ADC) is operated as a daily care facility for elder adults who need supervision or assistance with daily activities like eating, maintaining personal hygiene, and taking medications. In California, any care facility involved in providing care for people 18 years or older, for supervising daily activities, or providing protection for these individuals is called an adult day care facility.

While a large number of adult day care programs offer rehabilitative services, including occupational and physical therapies, nutritional counseling, case management services, and recreational or social activities, they are not legally allowed to provide medical care. Caregivers or supervisors can drop their elderly loved ones in these adult care facilities for a few hours each day, but unfortunately, adult day care abuse cases are on the rise in these facilities.

At Lanzone Morgan, we have years of experience handling elder abuse cases, both in daycare facilities and skilled nursing facilities. Over the years, we have come across disturbing abuse cases, but using our profound experience, we were able to get our clients legally compensated for the things they were made to go through. While getting monetary benefits may not matter for you right now, you are legally entitled to be compensated for medical bills and suffering.

If you suspect that an elderly relative or any elderly resident of an adult daycare facility or a skilled nursing facility is being abused, you should consider calling us at (562) 512-5505 to speak to our team today.

Common Types of Adult Day Care Abuse

Almost all the abuse risks that elderly residents may face in a skilled nursing facility are also present in adult day care. Some elderly patients may be so mentally and physically frail that they lack the ability to convey to their loved ones that they are being abused. Therefore, family, friends, or any other caregiver responsible for dropping off the adult at the daycare facility should always be on the lookout for signs that point to abuse.

Physical Abuse

Easy to point out, physical abuse is one of the most prominent abuses involved in such cases. You should always look for signs like bruises, marks, cuts, signs of restraints, and any unnecessary spots on the skin, which might be pointing to abuse.

Sexual Abuse

Any sort of unwanted or inappropriate gesture can be considered sexual abuse. Bleeding in the private areas, bruises, or marks in or around the genital region, or sudden changes in behavior, are symptoms of sexual abuse.

Financial Abuse

Patients suffering mental impairments should not be given expensive gadgets or huge amounts of hard cash. In a large number of cases, we found out that staff members of an elder daycare facility were asking elderly residents to write checks for them for personal use.

Lack of Dignity

Changes in behavior or a negative perspective are all warning signs that an elder might be facing lack of respect due to verbal abuse. If you notice that your elderly relative is fearful or confused if they go to the daycare facility, this means you should look into the matter.
