my experience in every area ive been to after honestly answering im disabled on ssi when asked what i do for a living has been all the crooks, users, takers, bums, exploiters, extortioners or characteristics of such in the people and/or their friends to try and take advantage of me and others surfaces and such have to be fought against
pushed back and/or other things by the disabled or the elderly and if they arent able to fight against such
they become victim. teaching people they dont want nor need such comannions nor would decent people or decent companions do such. severe punishment in prison and several years of fines having to be paid to force a person to remember consequences might alieviate some of the people doing such things.

These predators are in the same class with pedophiles,they just concentrate on the opposite end of the spectrum.The punishment for these crimes should be of the same severity to discourage the abuse of the aged.It is bad enough that they must suffer the abuse the government imposes upon these valued citizens,namely,taxes,medical care,access to services,and inheritance issues.The AARP does an admirable job in this area,but more should be done to aid and protect this valuable resource that has stood the test of time.

This doesn't just affect the abused. Every time such a case comes to light, people are less willing to trust someone to deliver good care. Raising the general level of suspicion is stressful for the elderly and their families, and can be discouraging for caregivers.
There's no more worthwhile activity on this earth than caring for each other. It's hard enough to get decent care for people who can't care for themselves, without having a monkey wrench thrown into the whole works.
