How Caregivers Commit Fraud
Financial fraud by caretakers is one of the most common types of financial exploitation experienced by seniors. Fraud perpetrated by caregivers takes many forms and could include:
- Power of attorney abuse: When caregivers are entrusted with power of attorney, they have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the senior. Unfortunately, caregivers, acting as agents under a grant of authority by a power of attorney, often behave in unethical ways. When an agent enriches himself at the expense of a senior, a claim for breach of fiduciary duty is the most appropriate course of action.
- Undue influence, fraud, or duress: Seniors who are induced by their caregivers through pressure or fraud to make financial gifts or to change a last will and testament are also clear examples of fraud victims.
When fraud is committed by paid caregivers, including home health aides and nursing home employees, the care facility or healthcare agency could be responsible for losses that occur.
