Abuse And Neglect In Group Homes
People living in group homes are often unable to care for themselves on a day-to-day basis. These are some of the most vulnerable members in society. As a result, group home abuse or neglect is especially outrageous. In many cases, people living in group homes are not able to tell others about what is happening to them. Members of group homes can be subject to various types of neglect or abuse, such as:
- Failure to monitor
- Elopement or wandering
- Medication errors
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Malnutrition and/or dehydration
