There are roughly 1.6 million senior citizens who live in nursing homes and long-term care facilities, with nearly 40,000 in Indiana alone. Unfortunately, many of these people may be neglected or abused on a regular basis. This kind of abuse is emotionally and physically damaging, and in some extreme cases, may even result in death.
