New Consumer Facts Sheets Available!

How to Prevent, Detect and Report Financial Exploitation in Long-Term Care Facilities

Developed in part through a grant from the Administration on Aging for the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA), these new consumer fact sheets discuss the prevention, detection and reporting of financial exploitation in assisted living and nursing homes. There are separate fact sheets for residents in assisted living and nursing homes and their family members.

The consumer fact sheets provide an overview of residents’ rights and facility responsibilities related to resident finances, tips for protecting themselves and how to report incidents of financial abuse. The fact sheets for family and friends of residents also review residents’ rights and facility responsibilities, highlight warning signs and how to report incidents of financial exploitation.

Share these fact sheets with residents, family members, long-term care facility staff and others interested in preventing and responding to financial exploitation.
