Question and answer
Q: What are some of the common characteristics shared by the elderly who are most susceptible to financial abuse?
A: Characteristics that make elderly more succeptible to financial abuse: elder persons may be more likely to have conditions or disabilities that make them easy targets for financial abuse, [ including forgetfulness or other cognitive impairments (Central California Legal Services, 2001; Choi and Mayer, 2000). Elder persons may also have a diminished capacity to rationally evaluate proposed
courses of action (Dessin, 2000). Elder persons may be more likely to have disabilities that make them dependent on others for help. In addition, seniors may be isolated due to their lack of mobility or because they live alone, which shields perpetrators from scrutiny and insulates victims from those who can help. ]
