Financial abuse of the elderly is a serious, ongoing problem in the U.S. It is important to understand that every time an elderly person loses money, it is not necessarily elder financial abuse.

To rise to the level of elder abuse, there normally needs to be some sort of intent to take advantage of an elderly person’s diminished mental capacity.

An elder law attorney can advise you, if you have any questions on elder financial abuse.
