Hiring caregivers is essential for elderly and disabled clients, but it also comes with certain risks. We will discuss how to protect against, identify and rectify common risks when hiring caregivers.

What can you do before and during? 

  • Hiring caregivers to work in the home
  • Common claims brought by caregivers against elders
  • Preemptively precluding elder abuse claims

What happens after you discover the caregiver engaged in misconduct?

  • Recognizing financial abuse by a caregiver
  • Bringing elder abuse claims when caregivers cross the line
  • Identifying everyone involved in the abuse scheme to recover losses
