Often our aging loved ones rely on us to assist them with achieving their basic needs. To provide this assistance, it is common to engage third parties who have particular expertise or provide specific services. Unfortunately, the elderly population is too frequently taken advantage of and mistreated due to its vulnerability.
At the Bay Area law firm of Bracamontes & Vlasak, P.C., we take issues of elder abuse very seriously. If you or a loved one has been the victim, contact us to schedule a free consultation to learn about the remedies that may be available to you.
Many financial activities require the involvement of banks, credit unions, financial advisers and other professionals. These individuals and institutions are given access to our finances that may allow abuse to occur. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for those who are bound by a fiduciary duty to diligently care for our money to take advantage of the position. As we age and enter retirement, responsible financial management becomes essential to our very survival.
There are number of ways a third party can cause financial harm to the elderly. Some common situations involve identity theft, opening unauthorized lines of credit, unauthorized or fraudulent co-signing and reverse mortgage fraud. If you or your loved one has been the victim of these or any other type of financial abuse, call Bracamontes & Vlasak, P.C., today.

Another area in which we rely on others as we age is for our daily physical care. Depending upon the specific situation, an individual may require a visiting nurse or relocation to a nursing home. Whenever we are relying on another person to provide care, issues of abuse and neglect are possible. The frequency of nursing home abuse and neglect has become shocking in today’s society. In the most serious circumstances, mistreatment and neglect can lead to the death of a loved one.
Our attorneys have handled cases of abuse and neglect involving intentional physical abuse, mismanagement of medication, bedsores, and dehydration and malnutrition. A professional caretaker is required by California law to provide a certain standard of care. When a caretaker fails to meet his or her statutory requirement, the individual or facility can be held civilly liable. We believe it is important to hold negligent and abusive caretakers accountable.
