Did Your Loved One’s Caregiver Disappear Without Warning?
Many senior citizens require additional help to complete the daily tasks that have become more difficult as their age catches up to them. Some rely on family members to take care of these things, but others hire a caretaker to provide help because their loved ones can’t spend every waking hour at their side. However, some people brought on as a caretaker choose to disappear without warning, leaving the person they are responsible for behind. No matter where the abandonment occurs, whether it is in a public place or private residence, this is a form of elder abuse.

How Can I Identify Abandonment?
The best way to know whether your loved one is receiving the care they need is to make sure you remain a part of their life. Even if you aren’t able to spend as much time as you’d like with your loved one, it’s still a good idea to check up on them as often as possible to make sure they’re being cared for. Some signs of abandonment you can look out for include:
- Poor hygiene
- Poorly kept living area
- Appearing noticeably more depressed or lonely
- Appearing noticeably frailer
- Appeasing lost, frightened, or confused
