What goes wrong with the perceptions of elder financial abuse? Data from older adults, healthcare professionals and students from Greece.

This study examines what healthcare professionals, students and older adults believe about elder financial abuse in Greece. Participants responded to two vignettes by choosing which characteristics indicate elder financial abuse. Greeks are less likely to perceive financial exploitation when the perpetrator is a close family member, but are more likely to recognize it when perpetrated by paid caregivers or more distant (male) relatives. Signing over the victim's property to another is less likely to be perceived as elder abuse than is the taking of money from bank accounts, even though the property is often worth more than what is taken from the account. Although there are some differences in perception between healthcare professionals and others in Greek society, these (and other anomalies) make it difficult to accurately report and prevent elder financial abuse in Greece.
