What are the risk factors for seniors and sexual abuse?

Any resident of a nursing home is at risk; however, studies show the following factors causes that risk to spike:

  • Seniors who have no support system in place, such as family or friends
  • Seniors who suffer from dementia. Statistics reveal that almost 50 percent of dementia patients have suffered some form of abuse.
  • Seniors who have already experienced sexual assault, domestic violence, or other trauma in their past.
  • Seniors who are in poor health or are functionally impaired.
