Welcome to the Glenn County Nursing Home Abuse and Nursing Home Neglect Information site of Young & Wallin.
While legislation has come a long way in the fight against nursing home abuse and neglect, too many senior citizens still become victims. While many think of nursing home abuse as physical or sexual, it can take other forms, including emotional, financial, verbal, and negligence.

Don’t Let the Abuse Go Unreported
It is estimated that more than 50% of elder abuse cases go unreported because many victims are simply too afraid to file a complaint. Unfortunately, this creates a trend and the abusers only continue to wreak havoc against others. It is important to report abuse and neglect when it first occurs so that the trend can be stopped and so that serious injury does not result to you or someone else. Below, we have provided you with various resource links where nursing home abuse and neglect complaints can be filed. In addition, you will find informational links pertaining to elder abuse and elder care.
