WORLD ELDER ABUSE AWARENESS DAY 15 JUNE 2018
While many older Western Australians are happily “spending their children’s inheritance,” others are less able to enjoy their money. Sadly, the incidence of financial elder abuse among vulnerable seniors is rapidly increasing. Isolation & dependence due to frailty or dementia increases an elderly person’s risk of losing money or assets to family, caregivers or fraudsters through greed, deception, pressure or guilt. Help stop elder abuse by joining us for a topical discussion on recognising & reporting financial elder abuse; Managing family expectations around gifts, loans & inheritance Use & misuse of EPAs & Wills And ways to protect older people from financial exploitation.
