PAXTON— An elderly mother helping out her son, a lawyer helping himself to a Brookfield man’s millions and an older gentleman with a Ph.D. who won the prize of a lifetime were cases of elder abuse — one fictitious, two very real — highlighted during a conference on elder abuse at Anna Maria College’s Molly Bish Center for the Protection of Children and the Elderly yesterday. “As we gather together and think of ways to protect elders there’s an equally large group somewhere else in the world thinking of ways to scam them,” said David Tuttle, director of the Molly Bish Center, which has adopted the elderly in its mission of “protecting the most vulnerable among us.” It was the center’s first event that focused entirely on elder abuse and prevention.
To report incidents of elder abuse or for more information the statewide Elder Abuse Hotline is available 24 hours a day at (800) 922-2275.
