Preying on the Elderly? Not on Our Watch

When a loved one has fallen ill and needs care at home, you might place your trust in the hands of strangers, care-givers, to provide assistance for them as you would. But what happens when that trust is shattered? 

Ninety-year-old Iris spent her life serving others as a nun. When dementia set in, Iris became the one to rely on others for the help she needed to get through the day. Sadly, when Iris had to spend an extended period of time hospitalized, the care-giving facility where she was staying took advantage of her vulnerability and had her sign over her monthly Social Security income. 

Iris' family was shocked and confused when Iris received an eviction notice from her landlord. The care-giving facility had failed to pay the rent on her apartment and Iris was on the verge of losing her home. Our attorney, Denise Miller, fought for Iris and her family by negotiating with the landlord to keep Iris in her apartment and got the care-giving facility to return Iris' funds and place her finances with a trusted family member. Thanks to you, we were able to get justice for Iris and she can now rest easy in her home, where she belongs.
