Financial Abuse of Older People – Remediation

Content Summary

 

Situations you may face

There are two situations that may occur in instances of financial abuse:

  • There is the potential for abuse because the parties have not considered how a situation may change in the future, and you are providing advice to prevent elder abuse or to reduce the potential of elder abuse in the future. You may have identified risk factors that exist with a particular transaction, and the potential of future harm to an older person.
  • There are indications of abuse occurring or harm being suffered by an older person.

    What you can do

    Whichever situation you encounter as a professional practitioner, there are some clearly defined steps that you can take.
