What happens when an abuse report is filed against a caregiver? Is there a similar program to foster care for seniors?
In case of any abuse, the first thing is to ask for help. Based on the report, an agent interviews the abused victim. If the victim could provide proof for his claims, the agent informs his family member. However, if there’s no sufficient evidence, no action occurs, and you are responsible for protection. In this case, the second thing is to shelter the victim in a safe place. You can ask a legal professional for help.
What is Adult Foster care?
Since there’s no specific definition for adult foster care, it’s hard to define. Generally speaking, the term refers to any home-like surrounding offering care for seniors who need help. The elderly who lives there take advantage of daily activities along with living and dining areas. Only a few members (usually five) receive care. Adult family care and family living are sometimes used as equivalents.
