I am afraid that an elderly family member or friend is being abused or neglected.  Can anything be done to help?

Unfortunately, elderly individuals are vulnerable to exploitation by friends, family, or caretakers.  Statistically, one in every five individuals over 65 will be the victim of financial fraud. Elderly individuals can also be the victims of neglect, since they are often unable to provide for their own care and activities of daily living.

If you are concerned for an elderly family member or friend, Butler Elder Law, P.A. can help.  We can discuss available options to ensure that the appropriate level of care and oversight is in place to protect the elderly individual, and potential legal recourse against culpable parties.  For more information, contact Butler Elder Law, P.A. for a consultation.
