Did Your Loved One Wander From A Nursing Home?
When your elderly loved one moves into a nursing home, your family has a right to expect supervision and protection. Still, thousands of vulnerable senior citizens are injured every year after wandering away from their building residence or grounds. In most cases, an elderly resident with Alzheimer’s or dementia doesn’t understand the dangers involved and becomes confused. It is the responsibility of the staff and management to protect residents from wandering, elopement and other dangerous situations resulting from inadequate supervision.
