Assessment of Financial Exploitation in Community-Residing Older Adults: Proxy Reports

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Older adults represent the demographic most at risk for financial exploitation. The present study used Random Digit Dialing methodology to derive a nationally representative sample of 5,777 community-residing, non-cognitively impaired older adults and 813 ‘proxies’ in order to determine rates of self-reported financial mistreatment, and compare these rates to those derived from proxy reports. Results indicated that current potential financial exploitation by family members was approximately 5.2%. However, proxies of community residing older adults reported financial mistreatment by family members at almost 3 times that rate. The potential usefulness of proxy reports for cognitively impaired elders will be discussed.
