Journal article citation:
Journal of Elder Abuse and Neglect, 15(3/4), 2003, pp.55-69.

While the number of violent crimes in the United States is decreasing, financial crimes against the elderly are increasing due to the aging of the overall population and greater concentration of wealth among older people. The United States, along with the rest of the world, is experiencing dramatic growth of its senior populace; and financial abuse of the elderly is also dramatically rising. Santa Clara County, California's response to this problem via their model programme emphasizing a multi-disciplinary approach to combating financial abuse is discussed.
