Are you a non-relative who is involved in the life of an older adult with disabilities and/or diminished capacity? If so, such relationships can be a minefield of legal, financial, and health care hazards for both friend and senior, even under the best and most well-intentioned of circumstances. Be prudent – keep meticulous records and always be guided by the advice of an experienced elder law attorney. By doing so, you’ll be protecting everyone involved to the greatest extent possible. And you won’t need a sleep aid!
