When an adult becomes incapacitated because of health or age, there is hopefully someone who can help to make sure that their needs will still be met. Unfortunately, the people who agreed to provide help at this time of need do not always live up to their responsibilities.
Vulnerable adults often end up in situations where they suffer because of the negligence or even deliberately bad actions of those who are supposed to help them. They are particularly vulnerable to financial exploitation, where friends, relatives or even strangers find a way to take their money or other assets. These bad actors may even attempt to influence the writing of a new will, or attempt to get their own names put on property titles.
