Learn How to Protect Older Adult Clients from Scams, Fraud and Financial Exploitation
Most professionals who work with older adults receive training regarding physical and emotional abuse. However, training that focuses specifically on fraud, scams and financial exploitation targeting the older adult population is limited.
The prevalence and growth of this type of abuse continues to be well-documented through the N.C. Attorney General's office as well as other government and law enforcement entities.
This program is designed to help you - the professional - identify red flags for potential fraud, scams and financial exploitation of your older adult clients.
Our featured presenters are on the forefront of the most current trends in fraud detection and prevention. They will provide vital information, tools and resources on where to turn when abuse is suspected.
