Question: What is the difference between elder and nursing home abuse?
Jeffrey B. Miller: Well there may not be a difference in a particular case but elder abuse is a broader term. Nursing home abuse and neglect relates to things which occur in the nursing home facility and more broadly in skilled nursing and even group homes. Elder abuse though can be more than that elder abuse can include financial exploitation whether by caregivers, family, or the con artist that we hear about on television. Elder abuse statutes in Arizona provide specific remedies that an attorney can help someone who’s been the victim of elder abuse achieve some measure of justice.
