Based on a preponderance of evidence, financial exploitation did occur when the alleged perpetrator (AP) wrote a check, for $300.00 with the resident’s personal check blank.

The resident was alert and oriented to person, place, and time. Due to the resident’s inability to perform the task of writing, the resident used a rubber signature stamp to sign documents including check blanks.
