PROTECT Week Highlights the Scourge of Elder Financial Abuse

Senior couple having problems with home finances

PROTECT Week, June 13-19, is the perfect time to remember that seniors are vulnerable to financial abuse by loved ones as well as strangers. Some warning signs to look out for include: a caregiver or family member who suddenly asks for access to your loved one’s accounts or possessions, changes in their financial practices such as new credit cards or unopened bank statements, and a financial agent who isn’t following your loved one’s wishes.

Beginning on June 7 we will be streaming a series of FREE workshops, webinars, interviews and tele-town halls with leading experts on elder financial abuse on our Facebook and YouTube channels.
