What should I do when I was accused by an elder I was a caring for?
I was a caretaker for an older couple for about 9 months and we got along great, his family thought I was doing a great job and they did not know what they would have done without me. My husband lost his job and had to find work elsewhere which cause us to move out of state so I put in my notice with him. I wanted to ask him for a small loan but was scared to so I talked it over with his daughter and she told me to do what I thought was right. I waited for a couple weeks until I worked up the nerve to ask him, at first he said he had to talk it over with his wife. A few days went past and he asked me to come over and he handed me a check that he said was a gift for being a great caretaker, I appreciated so much because it helped us out a lot. After we finally moved, me and the older couple stayed in touch. When I came back to visit family I would stop by his house to say hello and catch up. Times got hard where we were at that I could not come back anymore and we did not keep in contact. Several months went by until we had to move again, after we moved and stayed settle for a few weeks I got a call from my sister saying she heard that I had been in some trouble from an elder man with dementia. I was shocked because of what he had said about me. He told police that I stole thousands of dollars from him and I absolutely did not. After hearing that I got mad and a little upset because of how hard I worked for them. I want to know some advice on how to handle this situation because I have never been in this situation. I have to think the worse because I do not know how I can prove my innocence. If anyone has any advice at all please respond, Thank you.
