Elder Abuse Case, Essay
Your maternal grandmother lives with your aunt and uncle, who have been caring for her. Your grandmother claims they have been abusing her. She has bruising on both wrists and on the left side of her face. Your grandmother is also accusing your aunt and uncle of stealing her money and starving her. She asks you to intercede because her own daughterâ€”your motherâ€”is deceased.
You ask your aunt and uncle how your grandmother is doing, and they confide in you that she is unwell. According to them, she has Alzheimerâ€™s and is often incomprehensible, and that recent tests revealed she has a bleeding disorder called Von Willebrandâ€™s Syndrome.
- In your essay, determine whether your aunt and uncleâ€™s explanation or your grandmotherâ€™s claims are valid. How would you investigate to assess these claims?
- If your aunt and uncleâ€™s explanations are founded (and you must specify how you verified this claim), then you should suggest a few ways to help your aunt and uncle with your grandmother so she will not believe herself abused.
- If your grandmotherâ€™s claims are substantiated (and you must specify how you made this analysis), then you must figure out what you should do to get her assistance.
Your paper should be 2-3 pages in length and conform to CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA (Links to an external site.). Include at least three scholarly references in addition to the course textbook.
