Assisted Living Abuse & Neglect
Legal Counsel from Injury Attorneys in Georgia
Assisted living is one of the fastest-growing forms of long-term care for seniors. These facilities offer flexible, sometimes personalized services designed to meet each individual’s needs and preferences. However, while these assisted living facilities can be beneficial for some, not every individual receives the care and support they need. Sadly, assisted living abuse and neglect can be far more common than most people realize.
If you or your elderly loved one has been a victim of such mistreatment, we encourage you to call Jones & Swanson right away. Our Marietta lawyers are backed by six decades of collective experience and are passionate about holding negligent parties responsible.

Recognizing Signs of Assisted Living Abuse
Abuse can take many forms, including financial exploitation, sexual abuse, physical abuse, neglect, and even psychological abuse. Even though residents in assisted living facilities are not entirely dependent on caretakers, they can still suffer abuse silently, remaining too afraid to speak out or report an incident. That is why it is important that you stay aware of your loved one’s situation and continually check-in with them.
You should keep an eye out for the following warning signs:
- Depression or emotional instability
- Changes in social behaviors and communication
- Refusal to accept guest over or leave the house
- Fast deterioration in health or mental state
- Noticeable bruises, cuts, burns, or other injuries
- Reclusive or withdrawing behavior
You and your elderly loved one should be able to live with peace of mind, not in constant fear of abuse or mistreatment within an assisted living facility. If you believe abuse of any form is occurring, you must take action as quickly as possible. Our team can review your case and provide reliable guidance.
