How can you protect yourself and vulnerable family members against the growing problem of elder financial abuse? The savings and retirement accounts of the fastest growing segment of our population, our elders, have become a tempting target to the unscrupulous, strangers and relatives alike. Come hear a neuropsychologist describe the impact of cognitive decline, dependency and dementia on the potential for victimization, and which risk factors and red flags should alert you to the presence of financial abuse. He will be joined by an experienced trust & estate trial lawyer, who will also discuss ways to prevent unwarranted challenges to legitimate estate plans.
