As a trusted provider of elder abuse prevention programs in our nation’s senior care facilities, people rely on the Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation as a resource for information on a wide range of issues both inside and outside of a traditional long-term care setting. Our knowledge of the older American population and their challenges led us to produce the “Preventing Elder Financial Abuse Video Toolkit” which now gives your bank the ability to educate your family, your friends, those in your social organizations and your community at large on how to look for signs of elder financial abuse and how to prevent it. The video information was adapted from the FDIC / CFPB Money Smart for Older Adults so you can rely on the information to be accurate and timely. The toolkit includes: – A 30 minute video in a DVD format – Companion handouts filled with important information customizable for your bank’s logo – Customizable press release to let your community know the information you have to offer
