About:

Join Vancity and other Westside Seniors to learn how to protect your finances and avoid becoming a target!  Financial abuse is a growing concern since seniors are a rapidly growing population and often with the most assets.  Unfortunately, it is also the largest segment filing for bankruptcy.  The federal government is alarmed at how seniors are managing their money and the associated increased financial abuse - typically by someone trusted, including family members, caregiver, friends or neighbour.  It often goes unnoticed but there are steps to prevent seniors from being targeted before it’s too late.

The Seniors Financial Abuse Prevention Workshop will cover the follow topics:

Financial Abuse
Who
What
Why
Advance Planning Tools
Resources

Also, FREE coffee, tea, and snacks.  Let us know you’ll be there!  Contact Derik at 604-736-3588 ext. 602 or derikh@kitshouse.org.
