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

The National Council on Aging states that elder financial abuse and fraud costs elderly Americans billions of dollars each year.

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
  • Leisure Court Nursing Center
