Elder Law in the State of California
In the state of California, anyone age 65 and older is considered an elder. California has many laws that protect elders against abuse, which can include, but is not limited to: physical or mental abuse, inappropriate administration of drugs or healthcare, abandonment, financial exploitation, isolation, and neglect. Elder abuse comes under the arbitration of either civil or criminal law.
Caretakers or custodians of the elderly are held to a higher standard when it comes to the application of elder abuse law. Anyone who wishes to take over the affairs of an elder will require a power of attorney.
California also assists elders who need to move to a nursing home or assisted living space, with programs like Medi-Cal. However, after the person passes away, the government may be able to seize their home and assets to recover those costs. A lawyer can help protect those assets.
