The Hidden Costs of Elder Financial Abuse

Elder financial abuse decimates incomes both great and small, engenders health care inequities, fractures families, reduces available health care options, and increases rates of depression among elders.  Elder financial abuse can impact an older person by eradicating nearly all of his or her financial resources and unlike younger people, older adults have little or no time to recoup those losses.  Elder financial abuse is an intolerable crime resulting in losses of human rights and dignity.  (MetLife Study of Elder Financial Abuse, June 2011)  CCERAP's April 17 training will address the "hidden" costs of elder abuse: the costs to society as well as to the victim.  This training will also address how to prevent, how to report suspected abuse and where to find help.
