I am sad to report that earlier this week our office was informed that one of our longtime subscribers was a victim of elder abuse. She was taken advantage of by her trusted caregiver of ten years. This is a serious matter and everyone at Companion for Life is heartbroken over the event.
If you suspect any suspicious action toward an elderly acquaintance or friend do NOT hesitate to report it. You may report elder abuse with Adult Protective Services at (866) 580-HELP (4357) or (831) 454-4101 or call 911.
