About the BookA concise but comprehensive reference for navigating Alzheimer's-related estate and trust conflicts and common issues surrounding inheritance. Intended for a lay audience. The author is a veteran California attorney and previously wrote The Wolf at the Door: Undue Influence and Elder Financial Abuse (2017). Includes endnotes and an index.
The statistics are eye-opening: A half-million new cases of Alzheimer's are diagnosed each year in the United States, and nearly 6 million Americans are currently living with the disease. Compounding this tragedy is the fact that every person with Alzheimer's or dementia is a potential victim of inheritance-related exploitation. The two scourges go hand in hand, each year leading to tens of thousands of lawsuits and billions of dollars in fraud, lost inheritance, and disinheritance.
ALZHEIMER'S, WIDOWED STEPMOTHERS & ESTATE CRIMES is an invaluable guide for the millions of Americans who are struggling with cognitively impaired family members and inheritance-related conflicts. In addition to practical advice and illuminating case studies, this book includes answers to uncomfortable but often unavoidable real-world questions such as: How do I remove my drug-addicted stepbrother as trustee of my mom's estate? What can I do to protect my grandfather with Alzheimer's from a stepdaughter who got power of attorney and is now draining his bank accounts? How do I find the best attorney to represent me in a case of unequal inheritance? For those unsure where to turn, ALZHEIMER'S, WIDOWED STEPMOTHERS & ESTATE CRIMES provides a clear path forward.
