Who is Committing Financial Elder Abuse?

The truth is that, in many cases, an abuser is someone who is close to the elderly individual. The person may be as close as a member of your family, which can make the situation all the more overwhelming and challenging. Abusers will often do everything they can to limit the contact their elderly target has with others, making it even more difficult for them to seek help.

Financial elder abusers tend to fall under one of the following categories:

  • Caregivers: Home care service workers and nurses spend a substantial amount of time with the person they care for, which gives them all the access they need to take advantage of an elderly individual. They may steal items of value or try to convince the elderly person to take certain actions.
  • Family members: Unfortunately, as difficult as it may be to accept, it is not uncommon for a spouse, child, grandchild, sibling, or other family member to financially abuse an elderly loved one.
  • Neighbors: When elderly individuals live alone, a neighbor may see this as an opportunity to financially exploit them, especially if they have some access to the home.
  • Scammers: Anyone can make friends at any age, but career scammers tend to work hard to integrate themselves into the life of an elderly person, isolating them from friends and family to achieve their financial goals.

Examples of Financial Abuse

If someone is deliberately trying to manipulate, defraud, or take advantage of your senior loved one’s financial assets, it is important to know what to look for.

Here are some examples of financial elder abuse:

  • Theft: The abuser is borrowing items without any intention of returning them.
  • Continuous demands: An elderly person’s generosity may be taken advantage of as individuals within their circle often make demands for money and other valuables.
  • Coercion: An abuser may try to coerce a senior by withholding essential care, threats of violence, and other tactics to get them to include them in their estate plan or as a beneficiary for certain assets.
  • Mismanagement of affairs: If the elderly person has a durable power of attorney managing their financial affair, this person may not necessarily be trustworthy and may be exploiting their position.

What Can I Do About Financial Elder Abuse?

When you suspect that a loved one is suffering from financial elder abuse, you should immediately contact us, first, to try and stop the abuse as soon as possible, and second, to make sure you file an action within California's statute of limitations for financial elder abuse. The statute of limitations for financial elder abuse in California is generally four years from when the plaintiff discovered, or should have discovered, the abuse.

Our Valencia and Oxnard financial elder abuse litigation lawyers at Kaiden Elder Law Group, PC can help your family explore your legal options and will work to resolve conflicts as efficiently as possible. We understand that you may want to avoid litigation if possible, especially if the abuser is a family member. Sometimes the process is easier than people think because once an attorney gets involved, many abusers will stand down and return any stolen property or funds when confronted.

Should an abuser refuse to voluntarily cooperate, we can pursue legal remedies. A successful civil suit can result in the abuser being forced to turn over stolen assets, interest on those assets, any gains made from investments, legal fees, and other damages.

We assist families in Oxnard, Santa Clarita, and Valencia and provide our legal services in English and Russian. Call (661) 306-2500 or contact us online to request a consultation.
