Gaining guardianship of a parent with Alzheimer's disease

When your parent gets a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, you may both be shocked, saddened and frightened of the future. After the initial shock has worn off, you may be able to sit down with your parent to talk about what you will be able to do for him or her when he or she can no longer make logical decisions regarding things like health care, finances or even personal hygiene.

Was your loved one abused or neglected in a nursing home?

When you place a loved one in a nursing home, it is with the expectation that he or she will receive treatment and will be treated with respect, dignity and concern. When a Maryland nursing home or extended care facility fails in its duty to provide a certain standard of care, innocent and vulnerable adults may suffer.

Protecting the elderly in Maryland from power of attorney fraud

It is an unfortunate truth that the elderly are often targets of unscrupulous con artists. There are many elderly people in Maryland that have executed a power of attorney naming a person in their lives that they trust as their attorney-in-fact that will betray that trust and use the power of attorney to steal from the elderly person that trusted him or her. Protecting unsuspecting elderly family members from this type of fraud is paramount.

Power of attorney can save families a lot of stress

In a recent news article, a financial planner has disclosed some of the most vital items that senior citizens and their families need to consider when planning for the senior's care. One of the most important items, according to the planner, is the drafting and execution of a power of attorney. This grants authority to make certain decisions on behalf of someone when that individual is not capable of doing so, an important protection for most Maryland residents to consider.
