Managing Money: A Caregiver’s Guide to Finances

The Alzheimer’s Association has a new education program called Managing Money: A Caregiver’s Guide to Finances.  It is currently being offered virtually, and we even have a pre-recorded version so that anyone can view the program at their convenience.

The program covers how caregiving affects finances; legal and financial considerations; preparing for discussions about financial decisions and planning; how to lower the chances of financial abuse and fraud, and next steps/having a plan for the future.

The program can be viewed online by visiting https://training.alz.org/products/4355/managing-money-a-caregivers-guide-to-finances

The mission at FAST is to increase public awareness of financial exploitation with the goal of mitigating risk of exploitation and protecting our state’s vulnerable populations.
