AVOID ELDER ABUSE: USE CARE IN CHOOSING A CAREGIVER

By: Jeremy Los

February 3, 2011 (San Diego’s East County) -- The recent mistreatment of 93-year-old Pearl Harbor veteran Max Bauer in El Cajon has left a black eye on the profession of care giving. His caregiver is accused of leaving Bauer to wallow in filth, also allegedly robbing him. His case is among hundreds of elder abuse cases documented each year in San Diego.

Baby Boomers are quickly reaching the age where they, or their parents, may need assistance with daily tasks. But how do you find a qualified and compassionate caregiver—and avoid nightmare scenarios such as Max Bauer’s?

EDITORIAL: THE CRIMINALIZATION OF SENIORS, THE DISABLED, AND THOSE WHO CARE FOR THEM

 

 

By Pamela Hoye

 

March 17, 2010 (San Diego) -- I was relieved to read in East County Magazine that the federal Department of Justice has come forward to support court challenges that would block Governor Schwarzenegger’s funding cuts to the State’s In-Home Supportive Services Program (IHSS). But there other ways to kill a program, and do so quietly, besides funding cuts. Those of us currently receiving services are facing a vastly altered and far less caring program that threatens to force many of us into nursing homes.

Although disabled by cerebral palsy since birth and unable to keep a pace required by regular employment, I have been a productive member of society. I have worked as a freelance writer, editor, and desktop publisher, in addition to serving on citizen advisory committees and being active in political action groups.
