Elder Inheritance Thefts | How We Can Help
- August 3, 2020 - Elder Financial Abuse,
Our elders are the custodians of memory – links to our past. They’re also keepers of family wealth.
They’ve been accumulating wealth longer. Aging brings more than wealth accumulation.
Almost 40 per cent of people over 65 experience some form of memory loss. It’s part of the normal aging process.
Vulnerability comes with age. And elders get targeted. They get manipulated.
This is not a small problem. Elder abuse, including exploitation, is experienced by 1 out of 10 people, ages 60 and older, who live at home. Financial abuse might involve home property transfers, bank account manipulations, power of attorney abuse, and changes in wills and trusts.
Those abused may not know it or may be too intimidated to report it. Reporting is not enough. Only a small percentage of abusers are ever criminally prosecuted.
Civil prosecutions are left to firms like Hackard Law. We litigate estate, trusts and elder financial abuse cases throughout California.
