Elder Abuse: By the Elder against her Caregiver
A friend of mine who lives in a residential care home is having behavioral problems. She is becoming abusive to her caregivers and becomes very vocal in the wee hours of the morning, waking the other ladies that live in the home. I'm afraid she is going to be asked to leave. She has been asked to leave a facility a few years back. Is there medical support for elders that help with adult behavior problems? Is there behavioral programs provided to the elderly that are covered by medicare; somewhat like speech therapy? My friend has Aphasia and I'm sure some of her behavior is a result of frustration of not being able to make herself understood.
