Pioneer Valley Credit Union is here to help our members and the community in the awareness, detection and prevention of elder abuse.
Older adults are targets of this activity due to their trusting nature, higher wealth in retirement accounts, home ownership and other assets.
In cooperation with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs, we would like to assist our members and bring awareness of this growing epidemic.
The National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse defines elder abuse as “any form of mistreatment that results in harm or loss to an older person.”
The majority of elder abuse comes from someone that the elder trusts. This could be a family member, caretaker, neighbor or friend. Elder abuse is divided into the following categories:
If you or someone you know is suffering from any form of elder abuse, please contact your local protective services agency for assistance. The agency that you contact will be determined as to where you reside.
As your financial institution and a strong supporter of combating elder abuse, your safety and well-being is of great importance to us. If we suspect that you are being abused in any way, we will do our very best to protect you and your assets. For more information contact us at 413-733-2800.
You have the right to make your own financial decisions; do not let anyone threaten or intimidate you. If you think someone close to you is taking control of your finances call adult protective service.
