Elder Financial Abuse.
It is a dirty, disgusting term that makes most normal folks cringe at the thought of such a thing. The sad fact is, it is out there...in your community...maybe in your own family...in so many forms and in so many paces, many consider it an epidemic. Go figure that.
This week, I am privileged to have Barbara-Anne Foley, Executive Director of the Harwich Council on Aging, as my special guest to help address this subject. In addition to her many duties in this important role, she has been able to leverage her experience with thousands of seniors and the stories they have told about financial abuse, by working with in partnership with the Harwich Police Department, trying to warn seniors about these frauds and scams.
For those of you who do not know her, Barbara-Anne began her career in mental health and career counseling in Braintree, MA. She also worked in an adult day care center and a nursing center on Cape Cod before landing her dream job with the Harwich Council on Aging in 1999. She can be reached there at (508) 430-7550.
She has developed a primary focus on Alzheimer's disease and hoarding, both population of which are growing in leaps and bounds.
In 2006, when her own father lost his 10 year battle to Alzheimer's disease, she and her family started the "Remembery Walk ---Dave Birtwell Memorial", raising over $150,000 to date for Alzheimer's patients and their families.
This show will hopefully help you understand:
How to recognize elder financial abuse
The different types of financial abuse
How to uncover it in your own family
What to do about it once you do discover it
This is an important show. Please tune in and tell as many people as you can to do so as well.

Tonight's special guest is Debra Monk from Enfield, New Hampshire, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse from multiple perpetrators over several years throughout her early childhood and into her early teens. She's now become an anti-abuse advocate who's now writing a series of children's books addressing a topic that's close to her heart. "Most of my abusers were direct or close family members," Debra says. She explains the new book series for children touches on the tough but important topic of family violence and abuse, and what that might look like through the eyes and perspective of a child. That's because Debra eventually came to understand that there was a systematic cycle of abuse within her family that had already been going on for many generations. "I'll address family violence, such as domestic and intimate partner violence, sibling abuse, sexual abuse, incest, neglect and physical abuse. Abuse and malnourishment can create patterns and characteristics that when, if not dealt with appropriately may cause repeated cycles or systems of family violence and abuse to occur later on and well into their adulthood lives." Debra's published before. Her work "A Journey of Poetry from an Adult Survivor of Sexual Abuse" is available as an e-book and author Caroline De Chavigny included Debra's missive in her book, "Letter to a Monster." Debra says her mission and goal is to create positive change that reduces the risk for violence in already broken and volatile homes.

Tonight's special guest is Angelique Anderson from Stockton, California, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and activist who's currently writing a short story series called "Little Lost Girl." The first book, "Separation," has been released and book 2, "Home is where the heart is," is releasing this week. It'll shortly be followed by the final book in the trilogy, "Reunited." Angelique plans to include NAASCA info in her books, explaining, "My short story series is a fiction series based on my life. Which is why I wanted to use the resources you have available!" Angelique's an advocate for those who have been abused, and for former foster children. She grew up in dire and tumultuous conditions, bouncing back and forth between her parents, family members and foster care homes, and was abused in many ways. Angelique lived in numerous states all across the American West. All through her childhood she was alternately neglected, assaulted, beaten, treated like a slave, abandoned and left to her own devices. At 18 she was living hand to mouth when she moved in with her boyfriend. They've been together ever since. "I am very happily married to the most amazing, God-fearing man who has stood by me through the healing process and ups and downs that come with that," Angelique says. "We have four amazing kids, and I know looking back that my husband has been God’s tangible hand of love in my life."

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "For Our Kids" - Deborah Maddison and Eugenea Couture, Canadian activists from British Columbia, will join Bill Murray to lead this evening's discussion about the Rights of Children and Families in North America. TONIGHT'S TOPIC: "The Courage to Break Free" ~~ PART 1 ~~ It is a tragic irony that society claims to protect victims but when protective parents or professionals try to do the right thing, the victims often suffer retaliation. And worse, the child is not protected. We have all the right slogans like 'end the silence on domestic violence' but when it comes to domestic abuse the system itself often becomes an additional perpetrator, and the victim is punished for speaking out. Join us tonight as we speak with people who both personally and professionally have found the courage to speak out and stand up for both themselves and others going through this .. people who are willing to share their incredible stories. Tonight we are very pleased to welcome author and advocate Maralee Mclean and Domestic Violence expert, author, advocate and former lawyer Barry Goldstein. ~~ Every two weeks a new THEME will be presented in this series, with frequent special guests speaking from their own experience. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/ForOurKids or write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
