The Ping-Pong Parent

A home visit from Tim Lewis.

As we age, our adult children—if we are lucky—get more involved in our lives.  But sometimes this doesn’t work well.

As elder law attorneys, our job is to assist the older adult and only involve the children if the client wants us to.  We are also careful about undue influence or exploitation.

Alec Roberson faced such a situation.  His client wrote, “My wife passed and my daughter and her husband were taking over me.  But when I met with Alec in the clinic, he listened to me and backed me against them.  He was very nice and saw my daughter was not there to help me like my other children.  She was just for herself!”
