As in other residential facilities, like nursing homes and assisted living facilities, where the elderly are placed under the supervision of others, group homes can prove environments in which neglect and abuse occur. Group homes are usually small, with no more than six residents and one formally-trained caregiver who also resides in the home.
Usually residents in a group home, elderly or not, are mentally deficient in some way. Thus, they require continual assistance in order to perform the basic tasks of daily living. But these mental disabilities, most notably Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in the case of elderly residents, makes the patients in group homes particularly prone to abuse and neglect.
Neglect in group homes often arises because the residents’ sole caregiver is overworked and unable to provide adequate supervision.
