ARE YOU WORRIED THAT A SENIOR CITIZEN YOU LOVE OR CARE ABOUT IS SUFFERING FROM PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL OR FINANCIAL ELDER ABUSE?
Unfortunately Elder Abuse takes many forms against Senior Citizens. Sometimes the abuse can be physical, such as when a nursing home employee slaps, kicks or pushes an elder patient. Other times, Elder Abuse can be financial, such as when an unscrupulous stockbroker or “friend’ pushes an elderly client into a risky investment that ultimately loses money. In many cases, the abuse can be extremely difficult to detect, such as prolonged emotional abuse or the continued failure of a paid caretaker to meet basic physical needs. No matter the type of abuse, California has Elder Abuse laws that prevent harm to Seniors and allow for monetary compensation and recovery in civil lawsuits should abuse occur.
As individuals over the age of 65 continue to constitute a larger percentage of our nation’s population, Elder Abuse issues and stories have been thrust into the national spotlight. Just look at how many incidents of nursing home abuse or financial scams against Seniors are in the media on a daily basis. The reality is that when your loved ones age they become more vulnerable to outright theft, coercion, trickery, or deception, even by those caring for them. Because the vast majority of Seniors have limited financial resources and live on fixed incomes, financial and monetary Elder Abuse can be devastating.
