Occupational Therapist Checklist

The Center For Combating Elder Financial Abuse collaborated with Ms. Christine Rogers, a Doctor of Occupational Therapy Student at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. Ms. Rogers shared her expertise to develop the Detection of Elder Financial Abuse Checklist.

The purpose of the checklist is to provide the field of Occupational Therapy with a tool to quickly assess if a patient is a possible victim of elder financial abuse. Early detection of elder financial abuse can save a victim from potentially losing their entire life savings and experiencing severe emotional distress. The Center is confident that Ms. Rogers’ work will lead the way in helping occupational therapists protect patients from elder financial abuse.
