BE WISE Prevent Elder Abuse

According to California State Welfare and Institutions Code, Section 15610.30, financial abuse is "a situation in which a person, including but not limited to, one who has care or custody of or who stands in a position of trust, of an elder or dependent adult, takes, secretes, or appropriates their money or property, to any wrongful use, or with the intent to defraud."

Financial abuse also includes the illegal or improper use of an elder or dependent adult's financial resources.


Keep a close eye on attorneys as well.
