Exploitation of older adults in both institutional settings and the home is a major problem. While financial exploitation happens all the time, this pandemic and the quarantine has exacerbated this issue for vulnerable populations. Join us for this interactive program to identify who mistreats older adults and why; which older adults are most at risk; and how we can prevent exploitation. Best practices for responding to scams specific to the pandemic will also be explored.
This course is suitable for both beginning and intermediate levels. There is an introduction to the concept of the financial exploitation as it pertains to older adults which is necessary and appropriate for beginners. It also applies to intermediate levels as it expands upon the introductory level, focusing on the role of the professional to educate, advocate and assist in recognizing if an older adult is being exploited.
