There are many things to take into account during this pandemic. COVID-19 has put the world up in arms about the health and safety of themselves and their loved ones. However, are you considering all the ways to keep your family safe? We have all heard about the dangers seniors face while being in an assisted living facility and even some suspected negligence as to the facilities taking proper steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19. While we can’t help with the spread of a highly contagious disease, we can help you know who is responsible for the welfare of your loved one. There are many wonderful assisted living centers available but what do you really know about the one your family member is in? Covert Results has some firsthand experience and information to better help keep your elderly loved ones from being abused or neglected and stay as safe as possible. 

Millions of seniors live in assisted living situations today. Who are these people that are supposed to be caring for our elderly loved ones? What precautions are they taking to make sure the residents are receiving attentive care? Covert Results has the ability to investigate the staff to review if there is any abuse or if someone is taking advantage of your loved one. Some residents may or may not be able to leave these facilities so there are different behaviors to look out for. Caregivers can be wonderful people, and some develop a great relationship with the resident they care for. However, some may be able to manipulate your loved one to be able to obtain money, property, or anything else in in the resident’s possession. Covert Results has recently worked a case just like this. 

A caregiver was hired after meeting an elderly man in Nashville convenience store parking lot. She was behind him in the convenience store and had heard him state to a friend on the phone he needed a housekeeper. Once he was done checking out she followed him outside. Investigators believe he was targeted due to the expensive car he was driving. She claimed to be a caregiver and offered her services of housekeeping to the gentleman. Upon arriving for her first shift she had started taking advantage of the kind gentleman that hired her. She was assessing his assets and trying see what all she could take. During the day she performed some chores, assisted him with tasks, he paid her, and everything seemed fine. It wasn’t until the elderly man’s daughter came by the next day and started to notice all the missing items. Covert Results was contacted and the only information we had to go off of was a phone number. With just that we were able to utilize databases to search through her phone number. We identified the scam artist and pulled records on that individual. From there we conducted surveillance on the subject. After working with the local authorities, the items stolen were retrieved. In some situations, it may not be as simple as recovering stolen items, but at least families will have the knowledge of who targeted them and prevent them from targeting others.

Stories like these are all too common. Once everything opens up there may be information that comes to light about your elderly loved one. You don’t have to wait to be able to look into these issues. Covert Results has the ability to run background checks, conduct surveillance, and look into the habits of your loved ones and the caregivers they interact with. We can let you know if there is abuse, neglect, or theft happening right under your nose. There may not be much we can do when it comes to fixing the health implications, but we may be able to help stop further abuse.
