Protecting Seniors Wealth
Protecting Seniors Wealth provides a broad range of education, training and consulting services and publications, all designed to help people and the companies who assist seniors manage their financial affairs avoid or prevent wealth abuse.
Often referred to as senior or elder financial abuse, when Anne was first compelled to delve into the issue some years ago, after hearing all the stories told by people who experienced it first hand, it became obvious financial abuse leads to other forms of abuse, and it can be prevented with appropriate education and training. Boundaries can be established if preventative action is taken by competent professionals.
Investigations into the issue over many years, involved sourcing extensive information, survey details, conducting interviews with people relating to their 'stories' of financial abuse, and this all revealed a disturbing trend - it's prevalent, widespread and could happen to anyone. Protecting Seniors Wealth - Their Whole Wealth is concerned with helping to protect seniors' finances and investments, along with preserving their dignity, well being and lifestyle.
We are a growing network of key people, companies and organisations. First established with the launch of our website in 2014 to provide a 'communications hub' for handling the huge task of providing key information to the millions of people affected and the companies who help seniors with their financial arrangements and wealth management.
Our objective is to provide seniors, genuine carers, and the professional service companies who help them with their finances, with necessary tools and the motivation - knowing how to recognise and take informed action for managing financial abuse situations.
We're known as a resource people and professionals refer to and gain awareness for better protecting valued seniors and elders. For this reason, we offer various services: professional consulting, workshop classes for training, speaker presentations and publications for training and for the general public, a competent financial advisers and lawyers listing, newsletter, current and background information, the Protecting Seniors Wealth Guide and social media connections for access to broader communication.
There are many key professional people, firms and organisations who support and are connected with this growing important network, and committed to helping people set boundaries for dealing effectively with this issue that can easily become complicated if not addressed.
