Millions of Americans are managing money and financial decisions for a family member or friend who is unable to do so on their own. This can seem like an overwhelming responsibility, but these caregivers play a key role in maintaining the older person’s financial security and protecting them from scams and exploitation. In this web seminar, you will learn about four types of financial caregivers; how to help caregivers protect older adults from and respond to financial exploitation; and where to find key resources.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- Describe key facts about elder financial exploitation and its impact on older adults;
- Define the role of lay fiduciaries in protecting older adults from exploitation;
- List three signs of possible financial abuse; and,
- Identify state and local resources for preventing and responding to elder financial exploitation.
