The National Center on Law & Elder Rights is presenting a free webcast entitled Identifying and Addressing Undue Influence in Elder Abuse Cases on june 29, 2022 from 1:30 PM-2:30 PM Eastern.
Financial exploitation has been identified as one of the most prevalent forms of elder abuse. Often, financial exploitation cases involve undue influence. Undue influence occurs when a third party uses their role and power to exploit someone and deceptively gain control over the decision making of that person. Undue influence can affect anyone, even those with decision-making capacity, but often it impacts people with cognitive impairments or those who are isolated.
In this training, participants will gain an understanding of:
- What undue influence is and who may be most at risk;
- Indicia or red-flags that might alert advocates to the existence of undue influence;
- Action steps and options when undue influence may be present; and
- Proactive measures that advocates can share with older adults to help them avoid undue influence.
