When a Georgia caregiving center for elderly individuals with Alzheimer’s became national news for alleged abuse and neglect, it brought to mind several questions that families may have when planning care for older relatives. The Associated Press reported that, following a three-month investigation of Alzheimer’s Care of Commerce, 21 employees had charges including cruelty to people 65 or older, along with accusations of abuse, neglect and financial exploitation, filed against them last week. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation launched its investigation after multiple complaints were made by both employees and relatives of the residents.
