The last thing you expect after placing your elderly loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility is for him or her to suffer from dehydration or malnutrition. This is, at the very minimum, a basic care requirement. Anything less than this is purely negligent and inhumane. If you suspect that your loved one is a victim of nursing home negligence or abuse, take action immediately.

Signs Of Dehydration In Your Elderly Loved One
Sometimes it may not be obvious to family members that their loved one is silently suffering from neglect and abuse. Signs and symptoms of dehydration for instance are not always glaringly obvious. While other times when abuse becomes apparent, the loved one has deteriorated so much it may be too late.
Look for signs and symptoms of dehydration or malnutrition. You can never be too cautious when it comes to the safety and well-being of a loved one. Signs include:
- Dry or ashen-looking skin
- Saturated or dark-colored urine
- Poor appetite
- Inflammation of the eyes
If you have unfortunately lost your loved one and suspect it may have been due to dehydration or another type of nursing home negligence, we can file a wrongful death lawsuit on his or her behalf.
