Elder Justice Initiative: Current State of Knowledge Regarding Fraud and Abuse Committed by Guardians or Conservators

Date: June 25, 2024 Time: 12:00–1:00 p.m. ET

Please join the Elder Justice Initiative for a webinar on the “Current State of Knowledge Regarding Fraud and Abuse Committed by Guardians or Conservators.” Over the past few years, the roles of guardians and conservators have received significant attention. This is driven, at least in part, by incidents or allegations of fraud or abuse by the guardians and conservators against the individuals they are supposed to protect. To better understand these matters, the National Institute of Justice commissioned a report, Environmental Scan of Guardianship Abuse and Fraud (released September 2023). In this webinar, the report’s authors will share a summary of the findings, including available data on the issue, legal, policy, and practice considerations, and recommendations.
