Symptoms of Nursing Home Emotional Abuse

Though the symptoms of emotional abuse may be subtle, it is important that you know them in order to identify abuse when there is a problem. Some of the symptoms include:

  • Sudden changes in behavior
  • Agitation or anxiety
  • Confusion
  • Depression
  • Emotional withdrawal
  • Nervous behavior

In all interactions with a nursing home resident, it is best to be vigilant and make note of any changes in behavior, disappearance of personal items or overall, anything that may feel "off" with your loved one. If the nursing home has no explanation for the behavior, something else may be going on.
