A workshop on financial literacy is being held for older adults and their families will be held on Feb. 21 at the Maple Ridge Library from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Financial abuse of older adults is a growing problem in society. Learn how to help aging parents protect their finances, recognize and respond to financial abuse, access community resources for further information or assistance and make informed financial decisions that meet their needs.
In this workshop, presenters from the BC Centre for Elder Advocacy and Support will discuss powers of attorney and joint accounts; legal issues of capacity relating to powers of attorney, common myths about powers of attorney which can lead to abuse, the dangers of joint accounts, and the importance of advance planning.
