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
