How can I protect my elderly parents from financial predators?

It can be a nightmare to suspect another family member, friend or caregiver is exploiting your elderly parents financially. When parents live nearby, it can be easy to verify whether your suspicions are warranted, but as is often the case, thousands of miles can separate your watchful eyes from your physically or mentally deteriorating parents.

Roles of conservators and guardians in Colorado

There are situations when a person in Colorado may need to become a guardian or conservator for someone else. While many people do apply for one of these roles in order to take care of a child, an adult may need help when unable to manage affairs or properly absorb and consider information.

Casey Kasem's children granted conservatorship of their dad

Colorado residents may have heard that long time radio icon and the voice of Scooby Doo's beloved Shaggy, 82-year-old Casey Kasem, is struggling with the devastating effects of Parkinson's disease. His family is concerned about his health and safety and petitioned the court for a temporary conservatorship of their father.

Colorado mental health system in legal limbo

Survivors of the 2012 Aurora, Colorado, theater massacre still suffer from the aftereffects of the killing spree. Not all the lingering traumas are physical. One man, whose son died in the carnage, says his family and others have benefited from Aurora Mental Health Center's trauma recovery groups.

Dementia diagnosis may lead to conservatorship in Colorado courts

She got the dreaded diagnosis at only 49 -- younger onset Alzheimer's disease. At a time when she should have been enjoying her life beside her longtime partner, the Sacramento woman was experiencing baffling memory lapses that not only affected her work performance but also every aspect of the most treasured relationship in her life.

Children of Casey Kasem reach settlement with stepmother

Famous radio DJ and voice actor Casey Kasem has been bedridden in the hospital, and his children have had to battle their stepmom in order to visit him. However, the family dispute that has been ongoing since this summer has recently come to an end for the most part. Kasem's wife - the stepmother to his three children - had allegedly stopped all of the children's visitation privileges. When one of the children requested legal control of Kasem's health care, the 59-year-old wife retorted with court papers stating that if the children visited their father, the visits would be unpleasant and intolerable.

Guilty plea entered in case of swindled elderly Denver man

Dealing with an aging relative can be incredibly difficult. Nobody wants to watch a loved one lose the ability to physically take care of him or herself, especially if it is accompanied by Alzheimer's or mental illness. However, a situation can become exponentially more painful if a plan isn't taken to protect an elderly person from abuse. There are, unfortunately, people out there who are looking to take advantage of the elderly for personal gain. Aging people that have a lot of liquid assets can be seen as easy targets for fraudulent schemes, so it's important to protect them before a problem occurs. Establishing financial conservatorships can prevent senior citizens from being swindled.
