Jacksonville Elder Sex Abuse Attorneys

Representing Victims of Elder Sex Abuse

It is difficult to imagine that the elderly could become victims of sex abuse, but consider the following:

Sexual abuse has nothing to do with sex; it has to do with demeaning and controlling a weaker individual. It involves a predator exerting power over the most vulnerable. It is sick and depraved but it occurs and it is the most difficult type of abuse to understand and identify. Because of that, it frequently goes unreported.

Signs of Abuse

Look for the signs of elder sex abuse:

  • Torn or bleeding genitals
  • Infections
  • Venereal Disease
  • Bruising about the thighs and breasts
  • Anal or vaginal bleeding
  • Difficulty sitting or walking

Sexual abuse can involve contact, but not necessarily. Abuse can take the form of the worker exposing themselves to the resident or using a device to commit the act of abuse. In other cases, pornographic pictures can be taken, inappropriate kissing, or having the resident touch or kiss another resident.

Imagine the embarrassment of the nursing home resident who experiences sex abuse. Some individuals may not be clear on what happened, but they suspect it is wrong. Still others may not be able to communicate at all, and if they suffer from dementia, they might not be believed.

It is the ultimate act of taking advantage of another person.

If your loved one says they have been sexually abused, look for the signs. And please get medical help if you suspect there has been abuse of a sexual nature. The nursing home may not want to pry into this type of elder abuse.
