Elder Abuse is a Heinous Crime that Must be Stopped-No Matter How Profitable of an Industry it Has Become!

Rep. Constan supports plan to protect seniors from elder abuse

LANSING/DEARBORN HEIGHTS - State Reps. Bob Constan (D-Dearborn Heights) and Richard LeBlanc (D-Westland) recently threw their support behind the Elder Financial Protection Act, a plan that aims to shed light on the reprehensible act of elder abuse by cracking down on criminals who financially exploit seniors for their own gain.

"Elder abuse is a heinous crime that must be stopped," Constan said. "As people get older, they often need the help of friends and family to manage their finances. It's horrible that our seniors are often taken advantage of by the very people who are responsible for their care. We must strengthen protections for our seniors to make sure they are not taken advantage of by predators."
