Nursing Home Abuse: Warning Signs Your Loved One is a Victim of Financial Exploitation

Nursing Home Abuse

Financial exploitation is just a single example of nursing home abuse that happens to elderly individuals. According to the CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau), this problem is one that is seriously concerning. Consider the statistics about this type of nursing home abuse.

  • Up to five percent of all Americans over the age of 60 experience some type of financial exploitation every year.
  • Almost $3 billion was exploited from seniors in the U.S. in 2010.
  • The Medicare and Medicate systems are being overburdened by cases of financial exploitation with almost one in ten victims of it having to be forced to rely on these programs after they lose their own financial security and stability.
  • New programs to end financial exploitation were introduced in 2011, but they were only effective in stopping one out of every 44 incidents.
  • The individuals who are close to the elderly person, such as friends, family members, neighbors, pastors, nurses, doctors and caregivers are most likely to perpetrate the issues of financial exploitation against seniors.
