The complicated legal web around an elder could include a guardian, fiduciary, an estate professional, and straight up lawyers. Unfortunately, elder individuals are vulnerable to abuse and being taken advantage of from many directions – and you are sometimes the only ones standing in the way of those that would harm the elder individual.
There is a very strong crossover interaction between the medical profession and the legal profession with elder care. Determining whether an elder is competent to make decisions for themselves. Has the elder been physically abused? Are they vulnerable to financial abuse, and have they been so abused?
Dr Liz Geriatrics provides regular educational content that touches on those issues.
