Nursing home abuse: Is anxiety a sign of poor care and neglect?

Many people in Virginia Beach do not realize the importance of monitoring their elderly loved ones for anxiety and other mental disorders, especially if a loved one lives in a nursing home and suffers from medical conditions. Anxiety does not always develop from medication or old age. Anxiety often coincides with feelings of pain, trauma, abuse and danger, and it is common in people who live in long-term care residences. Those who end up in nursing homes often require assistance with daily needs and medication or suffer from diminished cognitive functions. This also makes them extremely vulnerable to anxiety in care facilities and nursing homes where abuse and neglect may occur.
