Monterey’s Cindy Healy Wants Congressional Action
Cindy Healy, of Monterey, California, is a CPA who serves as a trustee and guardian for many area elders. She works alongside Adult Protective Services and families to help prevent financial elder abuse fraud, detect it where it happens, and reconcile the damages. She asks members of Congress to act immediately on behalf of the nation’s elders who need help now but also for all of us that are seniors to come. As the number of elders increases, so does the problem.
Between 2000 and 2004, reports of elder and vulnerable abuse in this country increased 20%.
The Elder Justice Act will create a federal office of Adult Protective Services, allowing for better coordination and informaton sharing nationwide.
It is time for Congress to pass the Elder Justice Act. Your help is needed.
