As indicated in my previous blogs on the subject, financial elder abuse is rampant in this country. A recent post by the National Adult Protective Services Association indicates that one in twenty older adults have suffered some sort of perceived financial mistreatment in the recent past and that only one in forty-four cases is ever reported.
In Bounds v. Superior Court (2014) 229 Cal. App. 4th 468 the Court provided guidance on when there has been “financial abuse” under the Act.
