Elderly Abuse Neglect by a Caregiver
In-home and residential healthcare is typically provided by a caregiver, who may provide medical services per physician instructions, or may simply provide personal care services that are non-medical in nature. Caregivers who provide medical services must be certified by the state, through the California Department of Public Health, Center for Health Care Quality.
Receiving care in the comfort of home is not proof against the possibility of abuse or neglect. Elderly patients at home may still be far from family, isolated from visitors, or otherwise vulnerable to neglect. Signs of home health abuse neglect from a caregiver may include:
- Bruises, cuts or scrapes
- Rapid weight loss
- Bedsores/pressure sores
- Medication-related distress, including over-medication
- Mood swings, mood change or emotional withdrawal
- Fearful behavior in the presence of a caretaker
- Unsanitary conditions
- Sudden or unexplained changes to a will, money transfers or withdrawals
