Assuming guardianship of another person's property, medical decisions, and finances is a large responsibility.

Elder Abuse can happen anywhere, anytime. It’s estimated that older adults lose about $3 billion annually due to financial exploitation and abuse. The effects go beyond the checkbook; it can cause emotional distress, deterioration of physical health, and loss of independence. Only about 1 out of 14 cases are actually reported to authorities. If you suspect someone is being abused, please report it to local law enforcement or the Alabama Department of Senior Services (1-800-243-5463).
