Legal Basics: Using Consumer Law to Help Survivors of Elder Abuse
- 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Family members, health care professionals, and caregivers often assist older adults by managing their finances, personal care, and household tasks. However, the increased vulnerability of older adults could make them susceptible to financial exploitation and physical abuse by those entrusted with their care. Survivors of elder abuse who leave their abusers might be primarily concerned with their physical and emotional well-being, and may not consider the state of their financial health, especially if the abusers controlled their finances. Helping survivors of elder abuse includes helping them get on a stable ground financially so they will not return to an abusive environment. This Legal Basics Training will describe some of the financial difficulties survivors face and the consumer law tools that can help.
