At Golden Heart Senior Care, we advocate for the safety, dignity and independence of all citizens.

 
If you believe that a senior or a person with a disability has been abused, neglected or exploited, please report this immediately:
 

  • If the situation is serious, threatening or dangerous, call 911 for immediate help
  • Contact the U.S. Administration on Aging’s Eldercare Locator Service at 800-677-1116
  • Contact your local office of Adult Protective Services – Go to https://ncea.acl.gov/resources/state.html for local phone numbers
  • Contact the National Center on Elder Abuse at https://ncea.acl.gov/
  • Notify your Golden Heart Senior Care owner for help

 

We at Golden Heart Senior Care are committed to preventing elder abuse.

 

  • Financial Elder Abuse alone steals in excess of 24 Billion dollars from the senior community every year through foreign lottery scams, identity theft, and direct theft of property, cash and jewelry.
  • Forms of Elder Abuse include but are not limited to financial, physical, emotional, neglect, hording, and abandonment.
  • Sadly in many cases it is the immediate or extended family that takes advantage; or, the family lives far away and is not present to protect their loved ones.
  • Good agencies like Adult Protective Services still have limited powers. It is up to front-line Caregivers like us to proactively protect/advocate for our valued seniors.
  • It is imperative that those in need of a caregiver seek out a reputable company like Golden Heart Senior Care (licensed, bonded and insured), where you can be assured that all Caregivers who come into your home are drug-tested and nationally background-checked for their driving, criminal, and sexual assault records.
  • There are agencies that are not licensed, bonded, or insured, hiring unlicensed caregivers without thorough background checks. There are also numerous independent caregivers that are not licensed or background screened.
  • Some of these caregivers have been known to befriend the client, gain their trust, and sadly convince the client to give cash, jewelry, and more – some even steal or forge checks. Since so many of the elderly suffer from various forms of dementia these crimes often go unreported.
