Elder Financial Abuse | West Sacramento Rotary Club
Today I was honored to speak to the West Sacramento Rotary Club on how to spot and prevent elder financial abuse. With our economy and society in an especially vulnerable state, the challenge of elder exploitation isn’t going away – and we need to be ready to tackle it head-on.
With its large population of senior citizens, California is a major flashpoint in this ongoing fight to protect our elderly loved ones. In my presentation I showcased ways to detect and stop wrongdoing drawn from my two books, The Wolf at the Door: Undue Influence and Elder Financial Abuse and Alzheimer’s, Widowed Stepmothers & Estate Crimes. The facts they share are more relevant than ever.
It was a pleasure speaking with West Sacramento’s Rotary Club, an organization that’s been strengthening community bonds and assisting those less fortunate since 1948. In our unsettled times, it’s people like the Rotarians that help keep our state and our towns strong, prosperous and stable. So I’d like to express my gratitude to West Sacramento Rotary for having me speak, but especially for their own hard work, service and dedication.
