Many are unaware of the multitude of services available for caregivers and the elderly population. Local agencies provide educational classes to their staff regarding dynamics between the elderly individual and the care provider. In addition, the agency trains their staff to be able to spot elder abuse cases and when to report them.
Signs that their may be some trouble in the care taking situation are when the caretaker appears to be insecure. Furthermore, at times the caretaker may comment that they are stressed out or are afraid of their anger escalating. If you witness signs in those providing care for seniors of depression or any other emotional strain, this may pose some warning signs.
Escalated relationships have the potential to occur when the patient and caregiver reside with one another. It is important to monitor relationships between patient and caregiver that appear questionable, or have the potential to turn violent.
