Psychological/ Emotional Abuse


Nursing home abuse does not necessarily have to involve a punch, kick or a slap or other type of physical assault. A nursing home resident may be a victim of psychological or emotional abuse. If your loved one was harmed this way, call (707) 575-7141 for a free consultation. The experienced Santa Rosa nursing home abuse attorneys at The Law Offices of Freeman & Freeman are here for you.

Psychological abuse may involve a nursing home staff member who through verbal or nonverbal behavior causes a resident to suffer emotional torment. Examples of psychological abuse include, but are not limited to:

  • Yelling or threatening
  • Bullying
  • Humiliating
  • Ridiculing
  • Isolating resident from family and friends
  • Ignoring


A nursing home resident may not tell a loved one about the emotional abuse they are experiencing. It's important to pay attention to any personality changes you may notice when visiting your loved one. The following are a few signs that your loved one is experiencing psychological or emotional abuse:

  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Bewilderment
  • Withdrawal
  • Unusual silence, or inability to speak candidly
