Whatever the case, the finances of the retiree should be immediately examined and more closely monitored on an ongoing basis to safeguard the person's assets.
Here’s what to watch for: One immediate red flag is when an older person who was previously engaged and sharp begins to demonstrate a significant lack of recall about important matters.
This isn't the garden-variety type of lapse — like "I don't know where I put my keys" — that nearly all of us experience from time to time.
Domestic violence (also called intimate partner violence (IPV), domestic abuse or relationship abuse) is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship. Anyone of any race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender can be a victim – or perpetrator – of domestic violence.
It can happen to people who are married, living together or who are dating.
Here at The Hotline, we use the Power & Control Wheel* to describe most accurately what occurs in an abusive relationship.
While the inside of the wheel is comprised of subtle, continual behaviors, the outer ring represents physical, visible violence.
Dating someone, being in a relationship, or being married never means that you owe your partner intimacy of any kind.
Reproductive coercion can also come in the form of pressure, guilt and shame from an abusive partner.
It's more like when a retiree whose signature is on a bank withdrawal slip for a large amount later says, "That doesn't ring a bell," or "I don't recall taking that money out of the bank." According to Marcy Keckler, vice president of financial advice strategy at Ameriprise Financial, such scenarios should raise suspicion among the retiree's family or caretakers.
