Compensation for psychological abuse in a care home
Care homes are a place for people who are unfortunately no longer able to take care of themselves, and for the most part they do a fantastic job of looking after people who may be too sick or ill to continue to look after themselves. In most situations, care home workers are incredibly caring and talented individuals who give up so much time and effort to ensure that the needs of others are met on a regular basis.
Although the majority of care homes are incredibly safe and secure, unfortunately there are some where this level of responsibility isn’t taken and as a result residents of the care home are subjected to psychological abuse. If you, or someone you know has been the victim of psychological abuse in this environment, you could look to make a claim for compensation.
What are some examples of psychological abuse in a care home?
In a care home there are a number of situations where psychological abuse could occur, some examples of these include:
· Incidents of verbal abuse against members at the care home
· Claims for malnutrition of care home residents
· Claims for poor living conditions and hygiene
· Claims for physical abuse in a care home
· Claims for social abuse in a care home.
Who could have been responsible for injuries you have sustained?
Care home residents are placed directly in the care of care home workers who are responsible for ensuring that they are safe and cared for at all times. If you feel that this has not happened and a negligent care home worker has led to psychological abuse then you could look to make a claim for compensation.
