Group homes, like nursing homes and mental health facilities, provide care for vulnerable populations, such as children, the elderly, the disabled, those suffering from addiction, and the mentally ill. Usually, group homes have a small population of residents; but this also means that there are often a limited number of staff to oversee the residents.
Cases against group homes may include, but are not limited to, medication errors, infections and sepsis, wrongful death, sexual and physical abuse, slip, trip and fall injuries, unexplained cuts and bruises, and wandering.
If your family member is in a group home, visit them as often as possible. Stay well-informed about their care and pay attention to changes in their behaviors, living conditions and physical condition. A caring family is often the first line of defense for this vulnerable population.
