PBI Simulcast – Learn to Spot Scams and Protect Seniors
Older adults are at an increased risk for financial exploitation due mental and physical changes that occur with normal aging and more serious cognitive decline as a result of Alzheimer’s disease and dementing illness. The relative affluence of today’s older adults is historically unprecedented making them particularly ripe targets for financial exploitation.
Our expert panel from the Pennsylvania Bureau of Protective Services, the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities, and SeniorLAW Center will guide participants on how to spot the signs of financial exploitation, how to prevent it, what to do if theft is suspected, and remedies available to victims.
