Elder abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation are not always recognizable at first glance. In this half-day forum, experts will address the less-obvious sides of these phenomena, how to become alert to red flags, and what to do about them. Attendees will also learn how to share information about the enormity of the problem in order to prevent older individuals from becoming victims.
