In fact, in Cuyahoga County, 1,336 new files were opened with Adult Protection Service in year 2000 – that’s over 100 new cases each month. The report, released in 2001 by Cuyahoga County Commission Department of Aging, was a shock to me, but Ruth was not surprised.
“Barbara, lady they sent to me was well groomed, she was polite, I had no reason to distrust her. You could tell she was from a good family …” Ruth went on to justify how quickly she was robbed of $4,200 and how she only hoped that ‘ horrible lady’ is judged by law, by God and finally by her own karma.
Quality Care Options actively assists in protecting of our seniors. QCO recommends services that have successfully completed our exclusive customer-driven survey process. We survey seniors and family caregivers that are or have used these services and only recommend those with a 90% or higher customer satisfaction rating. We are not a referral company, as we remain a vital link between senior and service provider with our exclusive follow-up service, cornerstone of QCO.
Businesses serving elderly are invited to learn how to qualify for QCO Certification. Once surveyed, we help seniors by pointing them towards your verified excellent service. Quite simply, we help by eliminating guesswork involved in choosing an excellent senior service. More importantly, our service aides in eliminating more stories like that of Ruth.
