What Does Elder Financial Abuse Look Like?
Financial abuse is likely the last thing on your mind when you place a loved one in a nursing home. It is also often the hardest abuse to discover, yet a fast-growing form of abuse. There are no signs like there are with physical abuse. Financial abuse is easier for nursing home employees because they have access to sensitive banking and personal information about residents. They can commit financial abuse in various ways, including:
Cashing a resident’s checks without permission, including Social Security, disability, pension, or other retirement checks
Forging a resident’s signature and committing a fraudulent act
Stealing or misusing a resident’s money or possessions
Coercing residents to sign any financial document, power of attorney form, will, or more
In Anaheim, there are several facilities that have access to their resident’s personal information, including:
Anaheim Crest Nursing Center
Anaheim Healthcare Center, LLC
Anaheim Terrace Care Center
Buena Vista Care Center
Coventry Court Health Center
Harbor Villa Care Center
La Palma Nursing Center
