Elder Financial Exploitation via Power of Attorney Abuse: An Analysis of In-Depth Interview Data from a Pilot Study

Thursday, April 10, 2014 at 5:00 PM–6:30 PM Central Time (US & Canada)
Short Abstract

Financial exploitation of the elderly via power of attorney (POA) abuse in the United States is increasing (Stiegel & Klem, 2008).  This research is designed to explore the impact of such abuse through its analysis of family members’ accounts related to their experiences when a POA document has been used by another family member to manage an elderly relative’s (age 65 or older) finances.
