HAVE you noticed your elderly mum’s pantry is looking a little bare lately? Or that your frail father gets upset easily and appears unusually withdrawn?
You might be surprised to learn that these could be signs of financial abuse.
When author Anne McGowan became aware of how prevalent elder wealth abuse was, she used her skills as a public relations expert to compile the Protecting Seniors’ Wealth Guide.
Written with the help of James Kelly, a lawyer experienced in elder law, the e-book is designed to help seniors, their families and carers prevent financial abuse.
It is a well constructed handbook about what to look for, what to do and who to go to for help. From being proactive – plan ahead with a valid will and get your affairs in order – to acting on instinct and taking the initiative by checking unaccounted for withdrawals, McGowan uses everyday language and a no-nonsense approach to tackle the issue.
The guide is available on the website or on Amazon Kindle. A printed version can be ordered if preferred.
