Glendale Board & Care Abuse & Neglect Attorneys

Protecting the Rights of Elders in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley

A board and care home is a licensed facility that provides 24-hour custodial care for the elderly. These senior living facilities often operate out of someone’s home. Board and care, often referred to as residential care, offers non-medical care which generally involves assistance with personal matters, such as dressing, hygiene, grooming, managing one’s medications, and the like. They do not employ onsite medical staff. Generally, they are smaller places where 8 to 10 residents may live in a homier, more personal environment than a nursing home or assisted living facility.

What Types of Elder Abuse Occur in Board & Care Homes?

Unfortunately, the same types of elder abuse that occur in other senior living arrangements can take place in board and care homes as well. They may be perpetrated on residents by staff members, other residents, visitors, or guests.

Board and care elder abuse may include:

  • Physical abuse, such as kicking, slapping, pinching,
  • Psychological abuse, such as bullying, isolation, threats, cursing and other forms of verbal abuse
  • Sexual abuse such as inappropriate touching or rape
  • Financial exploitation
  • Drug diversion, where staff members steal a resident's medication
  • Neglect, such as failing to get the resident proper medical treatment, malnourishment, dehydration, medication errors, and more

Because residents of board and care homes may be chronically ill and have other problems associated with advanced age, they may be unwilling or unable to report neglect or abuses. It is often up to friends and loved ones to speak up for them.
