In our next episode, we’re dedicating it to understanding more about financial elder abuse and how to prevent it.
We’re joined by Luke Wright from the Victorian State Trustees to understand a bit more about the prevalence, causes and many faces of financial elder abuse and some warning signs to look out for.
As Luke says in the interview, financial abuse is almost the canary in the coal mine of elder abuse – as its presence is a pretty good indicator of other types of abuse.
Whatever you’re doing in your work this week, we encourage you to think about elders around you that may be vulnerable to abuse and what you can do to prevent it – you can visit elderabuseawarenessday.org.au for more information.
You can hear Daniella and Maurie’s take and thoughts about these ideas in their show Who Cares? which is released on Friday.
