Two women were arrested by the police on suspicion of elder abuse, specifically to have misrepresented themselves as employees of Placer County Health and Human Services to an 89 year old person. They posed as county employees and persuade their victim to move in and give them money in return for the cares they alleged that they provided.
You should remember the proverb “the habit does not make the monk”. It means someone could pretend to be someone else just by wearing the uniform or by representing themselves as another type of person. The value of this proverb is to remind you that you have to check the information and the professional records from someone who claims to take care of elders. You can call the services concerned to have recommendations about the employees who work for you. Also, you can ask advice from an elder abuse attorney in California if you are aware that someone is abusing you or your loved-one.
