This is one of only 4 reasons I’m able to break confidentiality with clients in my field (Substance abuse and mental health counseling). We have mandated reporters and can lose licenses and certifications for not reporting any probable signs in my state. So we all take it very seriously. I work in a psych hospital and elder/mentally illness abuse is extremely common. Family members will steal meds.
I had one get caught doing this exact thing. The daughter of the patient suspected it, set up cameras and my parolee was caught. He did not end up getting any more time in jail but they did slap him with a heavy fine, community service, and strip him of his license. So remember, you never really know who is ‘taking care’ of your loved ones.
