World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
From the WISER website (Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement) – World Elder Abuse Awareness Day: June 15, 2016 was announced.
According to their website: “Every year an estimated 5 million, or 1 in 10, older Americans are victims of elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation. Financial exploitation is a fast-growing form of abuse of seniors”.
For more information go to www.wiserwomen.org The site has an excellent page of Financial Elder Abuse Resources and eight briefs dealing with elder financial abuse prevention/exploitation. Each brief covers a different topic.
In previous articles I have written about financial exploitation of the elderly and other issues facing our elder population.
