Tempe, AZ is a growing city, and even though it is home to the Arizona State University main campus and has many young people settling down, the elder population is still very present.
Tempe citizens that are 65 years of age or older make up a little over seven percent of the population, and some of those citizens need special care. With old age sometimes comes disability, or the incapacity to care for oneself. The elderly often need constant caregivers.
Unfortunately, the people who are meant to care for our elders are often the ones who mistreat and abuse them. Vulnerable adults cannot always stick up for themselves when caregivers neglect them or take advantage of them by taking their money or claiming their assets.
This type of treatment happens all too often, all across the country and in the city of Tempe, AZ. If you have a loved one that you suspect is a victim of elder neglect or abuse, there are Arizona laws to protect him or her. Caregivers who take advantage of incapacitated older adults can face severe penalties: the courts take such cases very seriously.
