State officials and senior advocates are warning nursing home and long-term care residents, as well as seniors aging in place about stimulus check exploitation. Many seniors are being exploited for government funds dispersed in COVID-19 stimulus checks.
When nursing home abuse or neglect occurs in Illinois, reporting it to proper authorities as soon as possible can protect against further injuries, and in some cases save the life of a loved one. Various agencies in Illinois handle reports of abuse and neglect in long term care facilities. 
Plaintiffs must have legal standing to file a lawsuit in Illinois nursing home abuse cases. To sue for elder abuse or neglect, the plaintiff must be the victim, the legal guardian of the person who was abused, or the authorized representative of the estate of a loved one who was abused prior to passing away.
