Preventing Elder Financial Abuse Video and Toolkit
A recent study published by MetLife Mature Market Institute estimates that the financial loss by victims of elder financial crimes and exploitation is more than $2.9 billion a year with approximately 2 million seniors being exploited. Awareness of elder financial abuse is growing rapidly and bankers are often relied upon as the front line of defense in the protection of their customers, and as a provider of prevention education and information for elderly customers and their adult children.
As a trusted provider of elder abuse prevention programs in our nation’s senior care facilities, people rely on the Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation as a resource for information on a wide range of issues both inside and outside of a traditional long-term care setting. Our knowledge of the older American population and their challenges led us to produce the “Preventing Elder Financial Abuse Video Toolkit” which now gives your bank the ability to educate your family, your friends, those in your social organizations and your community at large on how to look for signs of elder financial abuse and how to prevent it. The video information was adapted from the FDIC / CFPB Money Smart for Older Adults so you can rely on the information to be accurate and timely.
The toolkit includes:
- A 30 minute video in a DVD format
- Companion handouts filled with important information customizable for your bank’s logo
- Customizable press release to let your community know the information you have to offer
The presentation is easy:
- Complete the easy-to-use press release and distribute it to your bank’s media contacts Download Release
- Personalize and print the handouts for distribution at the event
- Make a brief introduction of yourself and your bank
- Show the video
- Answer questions at the end of the video
No need for note-taking because the important take-away information is contained in the handouts. Be sure to invite local law enforcement, a trusted attorney, a trusted financial advisor, and your local office of Adult Protective Services to attend the event to help answer specific questions during the Q & A.
You can be a hero for providing valuable financial education information to seniors in your community.

With the support of our partners, the Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation transforms the lives of vulnerable nursing home residents. It is hard to overstate the transformative effect a bank can have on the life of an elderly person by removing fear from their lives — fear of neglect, fear of theft, fear of needing equipment and not knowing where to turn.
Our bank partners transform the lives of vulnerable nursing home residents by removing fear of theft, neglect, and physical or financial abuse and the Senior Crimestoppers program gives them a place to turn when they need help.
