Survey Seeks to Improve Ohio’s System of Responding to Reports of Elder Fraud or Financial Exploitation
When someone suspects or identifies potential elder fraud or financial exploitation, they frequently find themselves confronted with a bewildering maze of organizations and bureaucratic requirements. This often comes at a time of vulnerability or crisis that can result in people making decisions based on incomplete and sometimes inaccurate information about their options.
The Ohio Department of Aging is gathering information via an online survey with the goal of understanding how suspicions and allegations of elder fraud and financial exploitation are identified and handled in Ohio in order to inform inter-agency work to improve the current system. Understanding where we are now will help identify necessary improvements. Your participation and candor will help in those efforts, and you are encouraged to share the survey link with others who interact with older adults.
The survey takes 5-10 minutes to complete and will close on Wednesday, November 13.
