Warning Signs to Watch for in a Caregiver

a-1 home care altadena elder careAccording to the Administration on Aging, elder abuse is “a term referring to any knowing, intentional or negligent act by a caregiver or any other person that causes harm or a serious risk of harm to a vulnerable adult.” The National Council on Aging (NCOA) reports that as many as 5 million seniors experience some form of elder abuse each year. Scams that involve caregivers are usually associated with theft, financial exploitation and/or other criminal acts. In this article, A-1 Home Care identifies some warning signs to watch for:

1. Unusual closeness to your elderly loved ones

If your elderly loved one recently made a “new friend” with a neighbor or found a caregiver without your knowledge, pay close attention to their emotional bond. Does this new person seem to bond too well, too soon? Is this person getting too close for comfort, in your opinion?  If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, trust your gut.

2. Verbal abuse

Does the live-in caregiver get snappy with your loved one?  Does your elderly loved one seem to spend excessive time alone with the caregiver, who happens to also severely limit social visits by family and friends?  This may be a sign that the caregiver is trying to hide emotional abuse and/or negligence.

3. Physical marks

Have you found any inexplicable marks on your loved one’s body, such as bruises, burns and abrasions?  If the caregiver’s or your loved one’s explanations don’t sound right or something feels off, don’t ignore the signs, especially if you notice broken bones, sudden hair or tooth loss.

4. Too much access to funds

Many caregivers assist seniors with managing funds, but has your elderly loved one or his caregiver recently asked you to sign some papers?  It might be possible that the caregiver has coaxed your elderly loved one to sign over his life savings to her if the caregiver is also romantically involved with your parent.

Prevent These Scenarios with Licensed, Bonded and Insured Home Care

Your elderly loved one does not have to become a statistic.  Look for reputable licensed, bonded and insured home care agencies like A-1 Home Care, which happens to be one of the few agencies that have successfully received licensure from the State of California.  Being licensed, bonded and insured means that your elderly loved ones are protected from fraud, theft, elder abuse, and scams.
