Mark Shalloway Defines What Financial Exploitation of Elders Is

(West Palm Beach, Florida) November 15, 2018

Mark Shalloway, owner of Shalloway and Shalloway, is pleased to announce the firm’s newsletter on financial exploitation of elders. While most people think of elder abuse as physical assault or neglect, there is much more that can cause serious harm to a senior. Out of the types of abuse that unfortunately befall too many vulnerable adults, financial exploitation is one of the most prevalent.

“Elders are financially exploited when an individual illegally takes, misuses, or conceals their funds, properties or assets.” The newsletter states. Shalloway’s piece outlines that the two of the most common forms of financial abuse include fraud by strangers, or exploitation by relatives and/or caregivers.

In this newsletter, Shalloway informs us that, while there is no clear-cut definition of financial abuse, there are many signs to look out for. From strangers, it could mean a sweepstakes winner scam, where the winner must pay a ridiculous fee before claiming their “prize,” or gold bar/diamond scam, where the scammer offers to purchase the elder’s “fake” jewelry at a large discount. From, a relative, it could mean signing/cashing pension checks without permission, or continually borrowing money and never repaying it. To learn more about what financial abuse is, and how to recognize it, read the newsletter.

This publication is one of many from the elder law firm, Shalloway and Shalloway. The staff are dedicated to not only protecting the rights of the elder community, but educating these elders and their family members so that they can better protect themselves and their assets. The firm’s free, monthly seminars are designed to take that teaching and put a face to the name.

The staff at Shalloway & Shalloway truly care about the people,” Brandon Bell of St. Louis, Missouri says. “That is the most important aspect of their work, I think.”

Mark Shalloway Announces “The Middle Class Guide to Medicaid Planning”

(West Palm Beach, Florida) August 23, 2018

Mark Shalloway of Shalloway & Shalloway P.A is pleased to announce the publication of “The Middle Class Guide to Medicaid Planning.” This publication covers the many questions that comes with caring for an aged loved one. The short, but detailed and easily digestible, PDF addresses when the need for aid arises, how much these programs cost, and what will or will not pay for these important resources.

In a recent interview, Shalloway reveals that the middle class do not make enough money to sustain paying for the expensive monthly costs of nursing homes while sustaining their own lives. That being said, the middle class make too much money to grant them any assistance for the government. This leads to middle class citizens running themselves poor in an attempt to pay for aid services, or simply not even getting the help they so desperately need.

The answer to their prayers is Medicaid. This guide is designed to provide assistance to the middle class, a division of the SES that Mark Shalloway feels is horribly underrepresented. With the guide, middle class citizens can easily discover what options of Medicaid planning work best for them. The guide illustrates what will and will not work along with Medicaid, and offers a great breadth of information for the reader to discover.

Along with the guide, middle class citizens should turn to a lawyer who specializes in Elder Law, such as Mark Shalloway. Mark Shalloway has worked in the realm of Elder Law for over 25 years, has served on a number of committees dedicated to elder law, and is a vocal advocate for the elder and special needs communities. His firm is dedicated to making the lives of his clients easier.
