Denton's Canada (Edmonton)
Over the past few years in my career and other personal experiences, I have witnessed the effects and have worked within the frameworks of elder abuse through a unique lens. I have two elderly grandmothers in care homes and though the COVID-19 global pandemic I have seen many elderly people being taken advantage of or leveraged, sometimes in ways that are not obvious to the layman observer.
In my career, I work with seniors by assisting them with their estate planning and other contentious estate issues, and as such I am exposed to scenarios and circumstances where elder abuse can occur easily. I have witnessed elder abuse occur through my work, as ill advised or improper estate planning can provide a vehicle where the vulnerable can be taken advantage of easily.
