There are millions of vulnerable individuals who are unable to care for themselves due to advance memory losses, severe mental illness, intellectual disabilities and even as the result of an accident. There are legal processes that can be initiated to assist an individual with financial, personal and health matters. But legal guardianships/conservatorships are not always what they seem to be.

In this week’s Caregivers’ Circle I interview Clerk Sharon Bock, attorney and Clerk and Comptroller of Palm Beach County Florida and Anthony Palmieri, attorney and the Deputy Clerk and Senior Auditor at the Clerk and Comptroller of Palm Beach County. They identify the situations in which one needs protection and share the warning signs of financial fraud. They offer sound advice on how to avoid and/or intervene when abuse is suspected.
