Elder abuse is not just a legal issue

At Rafton Family Lawyers we have a team who operates in the area of probate and estate planning. We frequently encounter situations of elder abuse and our staff are trained in our response.

We wish to indicate that elder abuse is not just a legal issue but can impact many persons including other family members. It can come in many forms, mainly financial abuse, psychological, physical, sexual abuse and neglect for our elderly clients. There are various factors that can lead to elder abuse including a family history of domestic violence or the loss of the older person’s capacity to give instructions.

If you need more assistance and referrals in relation to elder abuse, please contact our office.
