When it comes to financial abuse, the elders are the most vulnerable targets of all. Unfortunately, it is the people they trust the most are the ones who actually do this to them. Depriving the elders of the financial benefits and security, misuse of their personal information like banks and investments, interfering and manipulating their property issues as well as social security benefits, all of these can be considered to financial abuse. The prime target of the abuse is generally those people who have acquired some properties or a financial backup for their old age. Generally, the elders who are unable to give willing financial consent or handle the dealings with the financial institutes are the target of this crime.

A trusted family member can be one of the prime suspects of being the abuser for the elders. Since they are often the local guardians or have complete access to all the documents related to bank, shares, and properties, it is very easy for them to deprive the elderly members of what they deserve and use the finances for their selfish personal gain. The case of elderly abuse and financial abuse in the hand of the opportunist family members is quite a common one is the USA.

In many cases, the children often settle in some other city or state or continent due to work or education while they leave their elderly family members in the hands of the caregivers. Caregivers are the trusted people who are responsible for the well being of the elderly person, physically and mentally. However, in many instances, these caregivers are found to be guilty of elder abuse as well as financial abuse. Since they are often given the power of attorney to act as the local guardian when the emergency situation arises, they misuse that power for their selfish financial needs. In such a situation, the safety net, that is the local groups the elderly person remains involved with will be the first people to notice the changes in the behavior of the victim as financial abuse leaves its mark on the mind. If you are concerned about anyone’s well being, you know and suspect financial abuse, then quickly get in touch with an experienced Washington PA injury lawyer so that he or she can help the elderly victim to secure their rights.
