2018’s States with the Best Elder-Abuse Protections (Wallet Hub)

Wallet Hub featured a Q&A on elder abuse facts with Kate Wilber, Mary Pickford Foundation Professor of Gerontology at the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, in an article on states with the best elder abuse protection. “Abusers can encourage secrecy or create fear,” Wilber said. “Keep the channels of communication open and have talks about risks if possible. Also recognize that fraud is common and that financial exploitation by family members is also common.”
