Join us on May 5, 11:30am – 5:00pm, for the Institute on Aging’s Sylvan M. Cohen 2015 Annual Retreat: “Aging with Financial Security: Addressing the Challenges of Cognitive Aging and Impairment.”
A rapidly aging U.S. population means older adults’ financial well-being and security is becoming an urgent public health concern. The five million people living with Alzheimer’s disease dementia are vulnerable to financial abuse or exploitation, or bad financial decisions. In addition, age-related cognitive changes also put older adults at risk. These problems are especially significant as older adults may have limited time or capacity to recover financial losses. “Aging with Financial Security: Addressing the Challenges of Cognitive Aging and Impairment” will examine the nature and scope of the problem, its challenges, and possible solutions. Experts in adult protective service, academics, advocacy and government will present cutting edge research and innovative solutions to support the financial well-being of older adults.

The deadline to participate in the poster session is April 24, 2015.
