Who Commits Financial Abuse of the Elderly?
Our Cleveland financial elder abuse protection attorneys have seen many people commit financial abuse against elder people. Commonly, we see:
- Caregivers who have been placed in charge of an elderly person. These can include in-home caregivers who force an elderly person to sign over real estate or nursing home staff members who forge checks to take money from residents.
- Businesses taking advantage of the elderly. Many unscrupulous businesses will take advantage of elders in vulnerable positions to take their money.
- Family members. Unfortunately, most of the cases we have seen involve sisters, brothers, sons, daughters, nephews, nieces and other family members committing some sort of forgery or fraud to take money from an elderly person.
