San Diego Elder Law Attorneys
Protection and Advocacy for Seniors
As our loved ones age and lose the strength and abilities they once had, they also become more vulnerable. Sadly, many families face issues with an elderly loved one being financially exploited or manipulated. In other cases, elderly individuals might be mistreated or abused and be incapable of defending themselves.
If you need legal protection for an elderly loved one, the San Diego elder law attorneys at Klueck & Hoppes, APC can help. We advocate for senior rights by assisting their families with issues related to elder abuse restraining orders.
Power of Attorney and Restraining Orders
If a loved one in your life is no longer able to manage their own affairs or make important decisions about their care, there are a few options for how to ensure they receive the care they need and that they are legally protected.
Power of Attorney – A “power of attorney” document allows an individual—or “principal”—to give someone else the right and authority to make certain decisions on his or her behalf; this person is called the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact.” The principal can outline in the document which powers the agent will be granted, but they often include authority to manage finances and make decisions regarding the principal’s care.
