How To Prevent Elder Abuse In An Elder Care Facility

We are all going to be faced with a decision of how to care for our aging parents. Elder care is just a fact of life. Within the next decade it is estimated that more people will be over the age of 65 than under age 65. And with that burgeoning number of elders growing strains will be placed on resources to care for the elderly.

Retirement homes, nursing homes, assisted living facilities and even home healthcare are faced with one or both of these problems: there is a shortage of qualified personnel to care for the elderly and there’s a shortage of beds in commercial facilities.

This leads to at least two problems. The shortage of beds in commercial facilities drives up the cost of nursing home care. And believe it or not that may be the least of your worries. The shortage of qualified people to work in these facilities has led to an increase in elder abuse.

The best way to keep an eye on mom and dad in any of these settings whether it’s a retirement home, nursing home, assisted-living facility or even in a home healthcare situation is with a Covert Spy Camera. There are many kinds available. The best one is the one with the DVR hidden inside it. They record to an SD card to make viewing very easy.

They come disguised as a variety of products so no one will really know that they’re being watched. It is the best way to catch and prevent elder abuse.
