World Elder Abuse Awareness Day – June 15

Wikipedia defines Elder abuse (also called “elder mistreatment“, “senior abuse“, “abuse in later life“, “abuse of older adults“) as “a single, or repeated act, or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust, which causes harm or distress to an older person.”  Abuse can be physical, psychological/emotional, financial, or even sexual, and often comes in the form of neglect, abandonment, and direct abuse.

Since 1994, Hired Hands Homecare has proudly provided services that support Bay Area seniors in staying safe and well in their own homes.  Our professional Caregivers and Management Team spend significant time with our senior clients, and keep trained eyes out for any signs of undue influence and elder abuse.  Trust and Security are foundational to our company culture.

Hired Hands is proud to celebrate this day by participating in the North Bay … Read More »

Caregivers perform an amazing variety of tasks on a daily basis.  Client’s needs and demands vary, and we very much appreciate your hard work.  We understand that it keeps you very busy.  So busy, that sometimes you may forget fundamental safety work practices. Thus, we wanted to provide some simple information especially for you so that you can refresh, learn and work safely each and every day.
