Robert Roush, a professor of geriatrics at the Huffington Center on Aging at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, emphasizes the importance of this kind of "psychological first aid" to help those affected feel safe again.
In addition, it's important that those who have been victimized don't make any major financial decisions right away - such as in an attempt to try to recoup losses - says Roush, who is the medical project director for the Elder Investment Fraud and Financial Exploitation Prevention Program. Instead, he said, the extent of the loss first needs to be determined, and it's important to speak with professionals, such as social workers who deal with financial abuse cases, financial advisors and possibly with attorneys experienced in dealing with such cases - if considering legal action - about next steps.

More than one-third of people 65 and older already have some form of cognitive impairment, notes Robert Roush, PhD., a professor of geriatrics at the Huffington Center on Aging at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.
Fraud Prevention Roush is the medical project director for the Elder Investment Fraud and Financial Exploitation Prevention Program, [http://tinyurl.com/ptbmgp9] or EIFFE, Prevention Program, which was created by the Baylor College of Medicine and funded by a grant from the Investor Protection Trust. Among other things, as part of continuing medical education EIFFE teaches doctors how to screen older patients for cognitive deficits that could put them at higher risk of being financially exploited. "You've got a lot of people out there at risk, and a lot of people that we know are being scammed," Roush said. "When elders lose enough money to have to make choices between paying for out-of-pocket health care costs and routine living expenses, they're going to go with the latter and forgo the former, which can cause all types of conditions to worsen," Roush explained. For older, frail adults, health can spiral down quickly, particularly if they're unable to get the care they need, Roush said. "It's a constellation of things," he adds of the health effects linked to financial abuse. Many who are abused feel embarrassed or ashamed and withdraw, leaving themselves more vulnerable to re-victimization and myriad other health consequences associated with isolation, from further contributing to depression risk to raising the specter of future heart problems. While doctors and others on the front lines seek to prevent and report elder financial abuse, Roush says loved ones and seniors should be aware it can happen to anyone. He advises also taking notice if a loved one experiences changes in cognitive function or appearance - like self-neglect - which may leave them more vulnerable to financial abuse.
