Within the purview of their expertise, the panelists will discuss the impact of financial exploitation on vulnerable adults and the society at large. Case examples will highlight the consequences of financial exploitation on vulnerable adults in terms of their health, finances and general well-being. Statutes will be reviewed and interventions will be discussed. Elder Law a Attorneys, County Attorneys, and others’ work has very real impacts on the victims’ dignity, safety and independence. This important issue will likely grow exponentially as the population ages in the next few years. The training presentation will enhance understanding of the multiple and often overlapping issues and concerns in financial exploitation. By using a multi-disciplinary approach to address the issue, we can stay ahead of the curve to minimize/prevent financial exploitation of vulnerable adults.

Mary Christensen, DNP, APRN-NP will cover the cognitive issues in the aging process, how the aging process makes them vulnerable, review executive dysfunction, define cognitive and emotional vulnerabilities, distinguish between delirium from dementia and explain the symptoms of dementia and describe frontal dementia.

Moderator:

Katie Weidner, Adult Protective Services. Katie will introduce the speakers and share some statewide statistics on prosecutions of financial exploitation cases and how APS can assist in investigations of elder abuse/financial exploitation cases.
