Description:Elder financial exploitation is a difficult issue to combat. Many in our older population are vulnerable due to social isolation and distance from family, caregivers, and other support networks. The days of Americans aging in communities surrounded by generations of family members are fading into the past. Sadly, we also know that senior investors are often targets of financial fraud, scams, and exploitation. Unfortunately, even family members and other trusted caregivers or advisers bilk seniors out of their life savings. With the change in community infrastructure and familial proximity, combating senior financial exploitation requires a holistic, community solution. Today’s presentation will teach participants how to recognize the red flags of exploitation, and give them guidance on how to report their concerns. Case studies will be used to give participants practice with recognizing red flags and responding to situations of possible exploitation
