Long-Term Care Facilities And Mismanagement Of Funds
There is a fine line between financial elder abuse and mismanagement of estate and trust funds. If your loved one is currently residing in a long-term care facility, it can sometimes be difficult to keep track of all the moving parts of your loved one’s expenses.
Your parent may have set up provisions in their estate plan or trust for financing their eventual assisted living arrangements. While the staff and management of these types of facilities are highly regulated, institutional staff may not be properly trained or supervised. They may try to step in and attempt to control your loved one’s assets. Was there fine print that no one noticed up front and now your loved one’s assets are at stake of loss to an institution?
Are Your Loved One’s Assets At Risk?
Ownership and management of nursing homes or retirement communities is subject to frequent turnover. The fine print may have changed in the process. You or your loved one may have inadvertently agreed to the provisions within the fine print at some point when you signed the facility’s forms. When this is the case, your loved one’s place at the institution and their assets may be in jeopardy.
