Wall Street Journal Looks at Home Care Aide Crisis

Readers know that the shortage of in-home workers and elders’ vulnerability to abuse by criminal caregivers has long been a concern of mine. So I was delighted with Phil Shiskin’s in-depth article on the subject that appeared in today’s Wall Street Journal. It focuses on California and mentions Napa's effort to develop a local screening program. Check it out at Caregiver Abuse.

For more on the topic and some of the initiatives cited in the article, see the Elder Abuse By Paid Caregivers page of my Web site.
