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.
