New Colorado law may prevent seniors from becoming abuse victims

Elderly people in Colorado are unfortunately susceptible to abuse of many different types. They are sometimes seen as easy targets for fraudsters - over 60 percent of abuse cases involving the elderly involve the exploitation of their finances. For example, an elderly Fort Collins couple was duped out of $16,000 by a person pretending to be their granddaughter. The woman claimed she needed bail money to get out of a jail in Peru. In another case, an elderly Fort Collins woman was employing a caregiver who eventually stole over $45,000 from her. Both of these incidents happened just this year.

Stepfamilies face struggles when caring for ailing family members

Stepfamilies are becoming more and more common in Colorado and across the United States. Forty-five percent of marriages currently end in divorce, and 60 percent of men get remarried. This means that four out of every 10 Americans have one or more step-relatives. Many stepfamilies get along well, but there are a multitude of tensions that can arise when a parent remarries. One of the most difficult situations that a stepfamily can face involves a step-relative becoming part of a caregiving team for an elderly or sick family member.
