Elder Financial Abuse | Dr. Stacey Wood
- February 9, 2021 - Elder Financial Abuse,
Elder abuse is a persistent threat to our seniors, and one of the most insidious forms is elder financial exploitation. The results can be disastrous, and they reverberate well beyond the pocketbook. Elder financial abuse can shatter a senior’s mental health.
Forensic neuropsychologist Dr. Stacey Wood is an expert on elder financial abuse, and she has devoted decades to advocacy for seniors who are victims of wrongdoing. She’s seen the effects of financial exploitation in hundreds of cases and has provided expert testimony in dozens of trials in court. She’s also been an expert witness for victims represented by Hackard Law, so I can speak to her experience and professionalism first-hand.
I was honored when Stacey quoted me in a recent article on the non-economic impacts of fraud and financial exploitation. Among them are included:
- Intrusive thoughts;
- An increased risk of suicide;
- And, Disrupted sleep.
No one deserves this kind of torment, especially a vulnerable senior. Look after your elderly loved ones, and be attentive to potential signs of elder financial abuse. It could save them not just money, but unnecessary pain and heartache.
Thanks to Dr. Stacey Wood for highlighting the dangers of elder financial exploitation. At Hackard Law, we’re proud to fight abuse alongside her to prevent tragedy whenever possible and hold wrongdoers accountable.
