What is Elder Financial Abuse?
Due to the vulnerability of seniors, they are especially prone to being the victims of financial abuse. It’s not uncommon for this type of abuse to go on for years before someone catches on. Financial abuse may be in the form of:
Using credit cards or cash
Controlling power of attorney
Anyone can engage in elder financial abuse, including family members, friends, lawyers, nursing home staff, and strangers.
