How to Spot a Caregiver Stealing

Spot a Caregiving Stealing

Sometimes, the people who we let in our homes and entrust with our lives can be the very people who steal from us. The senile age can be a tough period in any one’s life, no doubt. And yet, there are unscrupulous individuals who make good use of the situation, seemingly appeasing your loved one when in the corner of their eye they’re focused on a few dollars that’s left untended by the breakfast table.

Here are telltale signs that should warn you of the wolf in sheep’s clothing that is playing the role of your loved one’s home-companion, someone you want to count upon in times of need.

  1. 1.              Receipts not adding up.

You don’t have to be an accountant or master in bookkeeping to see through the cracks. It may seem puny at first: You’re receipts coming up short. However, it could be the tip of the iceberg, giving you disastrous results if unchecked.

First stop: Grocery list. If you notice items that seem out of character regularly being bought, then that could be a sign. On the other hand, you may notice a portion of your supplies keeps running out.

Don’t let the problem blow out of proportion; get to the bottom of it. Talk to your caregiver about the erratic purchases but try not to be confrontational. Ask for a receipt every time purchases are made and if possible, limit the amount of cash available for shopping around. Better yet, utilize a debit gift card. That way purchases are limited from the onset.

Caroll Rosenblatt has stipulated the need to be on your toes when it comes to having a hired hand in her timely book The Boomer’s Guide to Aging Parents. She warns “The caregiver is saying, ‘Let’s see if I can get away with it.’ If you don’t respond by confronting her, you’re saying, ‘Yes, you can.’”

  1. 2.      Getting too personal.

People who have hidden agendas are masters in the game of manipulation. They want to look good to fool people. Knowing your loved one could be in a vulnerable position, being alone, they want to insert themselves as trusted friends. Be careful when these bonds become the only beautiful relationship that your loved one cherishes, this could be the beginning of a disastrous set-up.

Rosenblatt warns about these antics to develop emotional dependence saying “It can start very subtly: touches on the arm, little gifts, and shows of affection.” Make sure your loved one gets enough companionship from everybody. Stories of grannies buying brand new cars or extending cash donations to their caregivers are not uncommon.

  1. 3.      Churning out “Poor Me” stories.

In a bid to get your loved one’s sympathy, the scheming caregiver churns out personal tales of sad stories (e.g., sister beaten by husband, relative in the hospital). You should express concern when your aged family member expresses undue sympathy and wants to act on it. Intervene at once for the next thing you know, he could be out issuing checks to the caregiver.

Caregiving is a profession and the relationship should be maintained at professional levels. Once it becomes personal, your flag should be up. Read the rest of this entry »
