A common form of neglect in elder care facilities involves issues with monitoring or a response when there is a change in condition. Most forms of elder abuse such as resident wandering and most falls are preventable with proper care and supervision.
Elopement and wandering is a all to common form of preventable elder neglect. Vulnerable adults suffering from dementia or the effects of medication or injury can get confused and disorientated and they can roam from the facility. Many times residents wander into traffic or other hazards such as ponds, woods, etc. In Minnesota the cold weather can cause another risk to someone who is lost and without supervision.
