Learn how to prevent elder financial exploitation

JACKSON, Wyo. — As people age, they often put trust in others to make financial decisions for them. Sometimes it doesn’t work out: an elder may give power of attorney to someone to help with their finances, but then the person (often a family member) takes advantage of the power. This is an example of elder abuse. About a quarter of Wyomingites 65+ will fall victim to some sort of abuse like this by 2040.

Come learn more about elder abuse and financial exploitation from the University of Wyoming. The presentation will be held at the UW Extension Office at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, September 30. This is a great opportunity for middle-aged and older persons, their families, and professionals who work with them, such as healthcare, Adult Protective Services, human service providers, attorneys, clergy, therapists, fiduciaries, professional guardians and conservators, bankers and financial advisers and law enforcement. The talk is approved for 1.25 general and 0.75 ethics CLE credits.
