As the population of older Americans grows, it's beginning to bring to light an ongoing problem in America: elder abuse. The already-vulnerable demographic is facing a financial crisis, and to add insult to injury, many times it is due to their own children, family members, and caretakers. Elder financial abuse spans a broad spectrum of conduct, and while there's no 'one size fits all,' it's vital to become adept at understanding, recognizing, and reporting such instances. Whether it's taking money, forging an elder's signature, or even telemarketing scams, having the proper training to combat this exploitation is imperative, especially as professionals stationed at the frontline. Being well-versed in safeguarding to prevent abuse, the Ohio reporting requirements, and applicable laws will help combat this public health crisis. This unique presentation will offer multiple perspectives on the elder abuse topic, making for a dynamic culmination of legal expertise, and healthcare knowledge.
