Sonoma County is home to more than 483,000 people and is the largest wine producing county of California’s famous wine region. Located to the north of Marin County and the west of Napa Valley, Sonoma is found in the southwest. More than 7.4 million tourists visit this county each year, bringing in more than a billion dollars in annual revenue.
For those who live locally, the County of Sonoma provides many important services. Among the most essential of those services include the programs dedicated to helping seniors stay safe and enhance their quality of life.
Unfortunately, even with support from the county, many seniors fall victim to physical or financial abuse and/or neglect. If you or a loved one is harmed by a caregiver, a long-term care facility, a financial fraudster, or anyone else who caused damage through dishonesty or wrongdoing, Evans Law Firm, Inc. is here to help you. Give us a call to talk with a California financial elder abuse attorney who can explain your rights and fight for you.
Sonoma County Seniors are Vulnerable to Abuse and Neglect
Sonoma County has an Adult and Aging Division that aims to “help ensure the safety, independence and well-being of older adults, persons with disabilities, military veterans, their families and caregivers.”
The division does many different things, including running programs like fall-injury prevention classes. It also helps seniors to obtain access to in-home supportive services and find high-quality long-term care.
Unfortunately, elder abuse, both physical and financial, remains a serious problem. Adult Protective Services will take reports and investigate any allegations that are made against caregivers who are neglectful, abusive or exploitive.
Protecting seniors is of vital importance because the senior population is growing rapidly. For instance, there will be approximately 143,636 seniors in Sonoma County by 2030, according to a Community Report from the Sonoma County Area Agency on Aging.
This large population of seniors will provide plenty of targets for those who want to cause harm through financial, securities and/or insurance fraud or other abusive behaviors. Seniors must know their rights.
