My father is in a Louisville nursing home. I take care of his financial matters—pay bills, reconcile his bank statements, etc. Lately, I’ve noticed some unusual activity in one of his accounts. Being as familiar with the nursing home staff as I am, I am reluctant to believe that one of these caring, kind folks is stealing from my father, but I have to be realistic. What should I do?

It may not be one of your father’s caregivers who is accessing his account. It could be someone who visits him or one of the other residents.

The first thing I would do if I were you is speak to your father to see if he authorized anyone else to use his account. Next, contact the bank and question the charges that concern you. Get any details you can from the bank, such as where the withdrawals were made (specific bank or ATM location) and how they were done (ATM or inside the bank; debit card, ATM card, or check).

Finally, get in touch with a good Louisville nursing home abuse attorney. An initial consultation is usually free. You can tell the attorney your suspicions and present any evidence you come up with to get him or her started. You may find it worth your while to get legal help simply to save yourself time: we have investigated such situations before and can do so quickly and efficiently. Attorneys also have easier access to such things as bank surveillance tapes.
