Read the fine print to avoid senior scams

Take financial precautions by reading the fine printIn Los Angeles, much of the mail seniors are receiving is for things that the senior is most likely not looking to sign-up for or purchase.  It is important, as your loved ones age, to take a more active role in their daily living activities and for some of us with aging parents and grandparents that means even going through the mail together.  As younger adults we may be a little keener to that which we need to avoid to protect our financial security and identity.  Some seniors, for whatever reasons you’d like to attribute it to, are more apt to “buy-in” to the scammers attempts to collect information.  Many offers for products and services will come as advertisement in the mail.  Some of the advertisements will be for legitimate businesses and things that the senior may be interested in incorporating into their lives, while other things that come in the mail are really just a way to scam a senior out of hundreds or thousands of dollars by obtaining their financial information or identity.

Sunny Days for San Diego Senior Care

Senior living without abuseIt is important that your elderly loved one enjoy all of the sunny days of their golden years without the worry of abuse. All too often we hear and read about in the news our seniors being taken advantage of, treated badly and abused.  It is time to take a stand.  The best thing you can do is pay attention to those you love and be a safe haven.  Their concerns may not always resonate the loudest or elder abuse may just be a passing thought, but to be conscience of the possibilities is the best way to combat a potential problem.  Speak up for those you love.  If you do not appreciate the level of senior care in which your senior aged loved one is receiving, take a stand and be heard.  You may need to be the voice that the people hear and get the concerns out there for your loved one.  Our seniors worked hard, endured much and often have been through struggles in their lives and they should be able to enjoy happy days in their later years.  Remember that evil exists everywhere, even in sunny San Diego.

Elder Abuse in San Francisco

Unfortunately, as in many cities, elder abuse in San Francisco is still happening.  Psychological abuse is one of four types of elder abuse that unfortunately exist in this country and in places like San Francisco. Seniors should be protected, cherished and respected, but sometimes that is not the case.  Psychological abuse is one of the hardest forms of abuse to identify.  Physical abuse or financial abuse will leave “a mark”/ evidence that the abuse is taking place.  There is a bruise or injury with physical abuse making it identifiable.  Financial abuse will leave a paper trail and evidence in financial records.  Psychological abuse can be difficult to identify.

Elder Abuse in San Jose

Stop on by today and check-in on your senior aged loved one living in a senior community in San Jose. The best way to ensure that you know what is going on in the place where your senior is living or receiving care is to make trips to check it out and pop in to see what is up.  It may seem like something you otherwise would not do.  Most of us would not show up unannounced in most places, but senior care centers or communities typically approve of family and friends to stop by without any advanced noticed.  While you are driving down the streets in San Jose take a look at how many senior living facilities or retirement communities offer signs that say to stop in for a tour today.  It is important that you have an open-door policy with the place you and your senior choose for their home.  Seniors are most vulnerable to abuse.

Signs of Elder Abuse for San Diego Seniors

Knowing what to look for can prevent your elder living in a San Diego senior care facility from suffering longer than he or she should.  There are difficult signs to look for when questioning the possibility of elder abuse in San Diego, especially when your aging loved one lives in a city outside of yours.  Your senior may be hesitant to report abuse and carefully asking questions can lead you to the answers you are seeking.  There is a fine line between concern and meddling.  Some seniors may not appreciate the line of questioning if you approach it in the wrong manner or are too presumptuous in what to expect.  The last thing you should do is because you’re senior to shy away from telling you important details so keep the conversation positive and refrain from asking too often or too many questions.
