As populations in developed countries age and diseases such as Alzheimer’s take their toll, the issue of how older people’s financial affairs are protected becomes ever more urgent.

Gareth Ledsham appears in Wealth Briefing on the subject of powers of attorney and cases where someone is granted the right to act on behalf of a person who might be deemed incapable of managing their own affairs.

The abuse of vulnerable elderly people is available to read on the Wealth Briefing website via subscription.
