BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - The United Nation's has designated June 15 as "World Elder Abuse Awareness Day." One of fastest growing forms of elder abuse is financial, as more seniors fall victims to scams, unscrupulous companies and even other relatives.
It is such a concern that the Erie County Department of Senior Services, in partnership with the Center for Elder Law & Justice, will once again be hosting its annual Elder Law Day.
The free public event focuses on several issues connected to protecting a senior's financial situation.
Elder Law Day is taking place at the Adam's Mark Hotel on Monday June 18 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Free parking is available.
For those who register by Friday June 15, they will be offered a free 15 minute consultation with a elder law attorney, as well as a free lunch.
