Senior citizens and at-risk
persons can be the targets of unscrupulous and illegal
practices. Each time victimization occurs, there are usually
warning signs and ways to prevent it. However, such prevention
requires self-awareness, the awareness of family or friends, and
short quizzes, one for individuals, the other for "concerned
others," found at the right of your screen, may help determine
an elder person's vulnerability to abuse.
Take quiz #1 and ask
others you care about, or who care about you, to take quiz #2.
Then, if it appears that vulnerability is high, make plans to
reduce the opportunity for problems. There are
available to prevent financial and other abuse!
