This webinar discusses the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s new guide for assisted living and nursing facilities entitled Protecting Residents From Financial Exploitation.  The guide was developed to help operators and staff of nursing facilities and assisted living facilities protect residents from financial exploitation through prevention and early intervention, and outlines ways to create awareness, policies and practices to protect residents. In addition to enhancing LTCO advocacy skills regarding the warning signs of financial exploitation and learning about effective strategies to prevent and respond to such abuse, LTCO can share these tips and the guide with facility staff.
