Considering The Risk of Elder Abuse In Your Estate Plan

Considering The Risk of Elder Abuse In Your Estate Plan

Considering the risk of elder abuse in your estate plan is important for anyone wishing to protect their family and assets. Elderly people are often targets for exploitation and abuse because they are seen as easier targets than young people or children. The elderly are also at greater risk because they may have health problems or cognitive impairments. They may also be more isolated or require caregiving.

Elders who are financially abused could end up without a source of financial support. This is why it is important to protect the assets of elderly individuals as early as possible. There are many ways to protect senior estates. You should consult with a financial advisor to determine how to minimize the risk of abuse.

Financial exploitation of the elderly is one of the most common forms of elder abuse. These abusers may be a family member, a trusted neighbor, or even a caretaker. They may manipulate or pressure the senior to receive gifts or early inheritance. In addition, they may take advantage of the elderly’s financial situation and steal funds.

If you are worried about the possibility of financial exploitation of your elderly family members, consider a Power of Attorney. A Power of Attorney is an individual who is authorized to make decisions regarding financial matters on your behalf. By having a Power of Attorney in place, you can make sure that the person you select is someone you trust. In addition, a Power of Attorney will make it difficult for a perpetrator to threaten or take advantage of an elder.

If an elder has a health condition or cognitive impairment, they are at a greater risk for financial abuse. Elders with Alzheimer’s or dementia may also be at risk because of their inability to make their own financial decisions. A Power of Attorney will also help you decide who will be in charge of your assets when you are no longer able to make those decisions.

In addition to a Power of Attorney, you should consider a voluntary guardianship, or an estate planning device. These devices can help protect assets from financial exploitation by making them harder to access. These devices also can limit the distribution of assets to specific purposes. In addition, having a Power of Attorney will make your decision legally binding.

Another way to protect assets from financial exploitation is to make sure that your Will is in place. This will give you control over your assets in the event that you are no longer able to make decisions about them. You will also have the option of using a trust to restrict distributions of your assets.

While there are many other ways to protect assets from financial exploitation, these are the most common methods. These methods include:

In addition to these methods, you should also make sure to stay connected with your elderly family members. Communicate regularly and discuss any concerns you may have with them. By staying in contact, you can keep an eye out for abuse, and provide the assistance that they may need. Also, make sure to keep a record of your elderly family member’s medical care.
