Lack of mental capacity due to aging often make the elderly a prime target for exploitation. Thankfully there are laws in place to protect the elderly from those trying to take advantage of them.
An advocate for the elderly, I have helped bring about Florida legislation and program funding that aids in protecting families dealing with Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia. I have lobbied on the state and federal levels on behalf of Alzheimer’s sufferers and their families.
Exploitation can involve people, businesses, family members, neighbors or acquaintances inserting themselves into the life of the elderly victim in order to gain an advantage. Often lonely and confused, the elderly make an easy target for these selfish acts that only benefit the exploiter.
Usually, the dependent elderly person easily succumbs to the influence of the exploiter leading to a loss of personal or real property or financial assets. Through legal intervention, such exploitation can be averted and in some cases reversed with a return of assets to the elder.
I am experienced in protecting the rights of the elderly and pursing action to correct exploitation which has harmed the elders of the community. Schedule a consultation today.
