In the past, we have written in-depth on our blog about how to spot financial abuse among elderly people you love. The second question many clients ask, which is perhaps an even more important question, is what to do in the face of possible financial elder abuse. There is no “one size fits all” solution, but there are crucial steps you can take to make sure the older people in your life are well protected.
How We Can Help in the Face of Financial Elder Abuse
At McCulloch & Miller, PLLC, one of our specialties is long-term care planning. We meet with our clients, learn about their lives, and help them figure out how to choose and pay for their long-term care options. We take pride in making sure all the options that our clients are thinking through are safe and trustworthy so that our clients can decrease the odds they will experience financial abuse from a nursing home, residential facility, or caretaking team. If you think you or a loved one has already experienced financial abuse at a residential facility, we can help you think through how to switch facilities so that you feel safer and at peace with where you live. We can also talk you through the necessary steps for bringing an action against anyone that has taken advantage of you or a loved one so that you can get compensated for the harm you have suffered.
We also specialize in creating power of attorney for our clients, and we ensure that anyone with power of attorney is reliable, well-known, and genuinely looking out for our clients’ best interests. This way, elders can know that their assets are being carefully monitored and taken care of. They can also be relieved of making financial decisions if they feel as if they are no longer properly fit to weigh the pros and cons of each decision they have to make.
At our firm, we offer both free initial consultations and complimentary educational workshops on these topics. These can both be great tools for figuring out how to move forward in the face of possible financial elder abuse.
At McCulloch & Miller, PLLC, we also have a relationship with well-known and respected securities lawyers, who can help determine if a stockbroker, agent or investment advisor is financially liable for elder financial abuse committed against your loved one.
