Presenter: Linda Cole: The Subtle Nuances Of Abuse in Long-Term Care  Leaving home and living in a long-term care facility is a huge transition for most.   This change often results in a loss of freedom and autonomy, but it may also result in the loss of a sense of security and dignity.  Residents in nursing homes and assisted living facilities frequently live in an environment where their care and well-being is dependent upon an ever-changing array of strangers.   Many residents are frail or unable to speak for themselves making them especially vulnerable to abuse.   Even those with good physical and mental capacity struggle with speaking up and protecting themselves because of fear of reprisal from those they depend on for their care.  Although there are incidents of physical and emotional abuse in long-term care that are blatant and easy to identify, so often abuse in these settings is more subtle and difficult for others to see.   This session will explore the feelings and experiences of long-term care residents to better understand the impact of these more subtle forms of abuse.
