Episode Description

Albany, New York elder abuse investigative specialist Jamie Richardson says of patients in nursing homes, “The physical and mental frailty of many nursing home residents increase their vulnerability and lessens the chance that abuse will be reported and remedied . . . from overmedication to physical and sexual assault and neglect leading to decubitus ulcers and even death, these complex and challenging cases often go undetected.’ Do you have a loved one in a nursing home or know someone who does? Are you concerned about their welfare? Do they get the proper care? Jamie Richardson along with Carole Herman, the founder of grass roots elder abuse advocacy non-profit aptly named, Foundation Aiding The Elderly (FATE) will discuss how to recognize the signs of maltreatment and what to do when it is identified.
