Marin County and California Financial Elder Abuse Attorney: Keeping Seniors Active

ATTORNEY NEWSLETTER

Financial Exploitation of Seniors Can Be Devastating

Isolation Is The Biggest Danger

Keep Senior Loved Ones Connected

Seniors here in Marin County and throughout California are vulnerable to financial elder abuse. Financial elder abuse is a real danger for seniors across the board but most especially for isolated seniors, who are particularly vulnerable.  Caregivers, insurance agents, financial advisors and others use a senior’s isolation to take their money by outright theft, manipulation, or undue influence to coax seniors into harmful transactions that benefit the abuser but may leave the senior financially destitute. 

The Marin financial elder abuse attorneys at Evans Law Firm represent victims of financial elder abuse and their loved ones here in Marin and throughout California whether the financial elder abuse comes at the hands of strangers, caregivers, stock brokers, trustees, agents under a Power of Attorney, conservators, financial advisors or retirement planners, insurance agents selling inappropriate products like annuities or life insurance, and others.  If you or a loved one has been the victim of financial elder abuse in Marin County or elsewhere in California, call our financial elder abuse lawyers today at (415)441-8669. 

Keeping Seniors Active

Keeping a senior active and engaged with others is a real step in avoiding the elder abuse that often follows isolation. As one leading medical official[1] working with elder abuse cases put it, “Cultivating social relationships is probably the most effective – and the most inexpensive, by the way – intervention, not only to prevent elder abuse, but to improve the quality of life for older people, irrespective of the medical conditions they face.” Seniors not only find joy in an active social life with family, friends, church and synagogue groups and senior centers but they also find support.  Talking over issues with others is helpful throughout life, but especially as we grow older. Being home alone with no one to talk to can leaves a senior more vulnerable to the many scams out there designed to rip off older people.
