Contact a Kansas nursing home injury lawyer representing clients in Olathe, KS today to schedule your free initial consultation.
General neglect of seniors is the most prevalent type of abuse. Neglect is the result of a lack of interest in the well being of the senior citizen. While physical, sexual, and mental abuse are the result of intentional and purposeful acts of the staff, neglect may occur when a caregiver simply does not care. Caregivers neglect their duty when they fail to provide some necessary element of the resident's survival. Such neglect can include anything from failing to provide food & water to not paying the heating bill.
