My elderly father is being financially taken advantage of by grandson & nephew. What do I need to do to stop this (daughter)?
Question Details: My dad's grandson almost took $100K from dad to invest in real estate. My nephew's (grandson) wife is now charging my dad $2,100 a month to take care of him in his home. This week my dad's convicted felon nephew took many of my dad's possessions. What step do I need to take before my dad has lost everyhting? He will need all of resources for his OWN care in the future. I live ten hours from my dad which make it hard to prevent him being manipulated.

Taking economic advantage of a senior is a form of elder abuse. It needs to be reported. I've provided a site that will explain further and provide several numbers for you to call: http://www.georgiaombudsman.org/docs/GAElderlyAbuseBrochure.pdf
Contact someone ASAP, economic abuse can escalate to something more.
Best of luck.
