What do you do when a senior is abusing his paid caregiver?
I have been helping organize care for my mother's husband who has Parkinson's and severely disabled, incontinent, etc. Over time I believe he has become abusive to his caregiver, who I hired through an agency. The poor man has to sleep on the living room floor of a small one bedroom apt, and my mom's husband sits in a chair and stares at him while he sleeps and wakes him whenever he stirs. The agency is only giving him 80 dollars a day for 24hr care which seems criminal to me, but the guy needs the money and doesn't want me to say anything to the agency. My mom has had a stroke so doesn't really realize everything that is going on. My mom's boyfriend gets irate when he doesn't get served and catered to at every moment, and starts demanding that they both "comfort him." Help! What should I do?
