Michael Schroeder, who recently completed a John A. Hartford Foundation-sponsored Journalists in Aging Fellowship, has a three-part U.S. News & World Report series on financial elder abuse.

The three articles by Michael Schroeder discuss different aspects of the huge, but under-reported, issue of financial exploitation of older adults. The articles were completed as part of the Journalists in Aging Fellowship, a program of the Gerontological Society of America and New America Media:

Part 1 - “Financial Exploitation: When Taking Money Amounts to Elder Abuse

Part 2  - "The Mental and Physical Cost of Elder Financial Abuse"

Part 3 - "What to Do If You or Someone You Love Has Been Financially Exploited"
