While it may not be right in your backyard, it’s still a worthy (and free!) event that will be raising awareness of the exploration of the elderly.
Below the free event, held on Wed., 5/30, I’ve provided the details for the 5th Annual Gerontology Conference, which is on Thursday, 5/31.
FREE EVENT on WED, 5/30:
Indiana premier of the documentary, “Last Will and Embezzlement”
O’Laughlin Auditorium at Saint Mary’s College, Notre Dame, IN

This free-admission event will be open to the public to raise awareness of financial exploitation of our elderly. The statistics are staggering. “Financial abuse robbed elder Americans of an estimated $2.9 billion last year, up 12 percent from 2008.”*
Elder abuse robs our families and our community! This newly released documentary, “Last Will and Embezzlement”, was inspired by true-life events in the family of producer Pamela S.K Glasner. It stars Hollywood icon Mickey Rooney who was a victim of abuse. It is our hope that this documentary will shine a light on the pervasive problem of financial exploitation, and will help those who have potentially-vulnerable adults in their lives to be on the look-out for signs of victimization. Those who attend this film event will be educated, challenged and inspired to action.
