Proactive Planning to Avoid Crisis; Empowering Yourself and Others to Prevent Elder Abuse, Avoid Scams and Neglect - CEU Event

Tuesday 10/16/2018 05:00 PM - 07:15 PM
Silverado Senior Living St. Charles
4058 E. Main Street, St. Charles, IL 60174

Presented by Nancie Dorjath, Dorjath Law Center

Elder Abuse takes many forms, and includes any knowing, intentional act of negligence by a family member, caregiver, friend or others that causes harm to a senior. But we often have difficulty seeing it coming, as we cannot imagine these things happening “in our neighborhood.” Seniors are also often the target of financial scams and neglect, two other areas of abuse. How can we protect our loved ones from being subject to these horrific situations?

We will discuss the importance of planning as a method to monitor situations and take immediate action should issues arise. It's important for everyone to plan for the future, but legal plans are especially important for seniors. The sooner planning starts, the more likely we can control a situation and prevent abuse. Some key issues involve what types of planning are necessary, what documents we need in place and the key conversations to have prior to any issues arising.

Nancie will review the most common types of abuse and also some prevalent scams facing the elderly. She will provide tools that will empower you to take the necessary precautions to avoid issues and to be armed with the knowledge to take action when needed. We hope that you can join us for this critical conversation.
