Many elderly people rely entirely on their children, family members or other trusted individuals to help them. This dependence upon caregivers or family members makes an older person more vulnerable to abuse and financial exploitation. Legal arrangements and protective actions by family may be necessary to shield loved ones from making bad decisions or from being taken advantage of.
Probably the most common mistake is the failure to plan, having the wrong plan or even having an outdated plan. Planning can help you whether you have a large or small estate. In fact it can save a greater percentage of the estate for the smaller estates.
