What Is Elder Abuse?

As people become older, they can become more physically frail and may not be able to think as clearly as they used to.  This can leave a wide opening for caregivers and and others to take advantage or physically harm them.  Orange County elder abuse acts on our loved ones may include:

  • financial exploitation

  • Repeated Unexplained Injuries  – These can include bruises, cuts or welts.
  • Changes in Personality – Watch out for major changes in the elder’s behavior, including excessive suspicion or fearfulness
  • Unexplained Changes in Finances Be wary of changes in the elder’s normal lifestyle, large withdrawals from their accounts or checks written with signatures that don’t match the elder’s.
  • Lack of Hygiene – Caregivers can often neglect the elderly by not bathing them and allowing bedsores to crop up.
