Approximately 10,000 people turn 65 years old every day. As the population ages, the number of reports of abuse, neglect, and exploitation of older adults is rising. In many cases, the abuser is an intimate partner, adult child or other family member or caregiver of the older victim. This seminar will address how to identify financial exploitation of older adults. Using both general and local case studies, this seminar will focus how to identify financial exploitation and strategies to address safety needs of our elderly population in order to enhance their quality of life. A broad panel of experts will lend knowledge to increase collaboration among key stakeholders.
