How You Can Help
FAST Consultants share their expertise and advise Fiduciary Abuse Specialists. The Fiduciary Abuse Specialists are employed by Adult Protective Services, the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program, the Office of the Public Guardian and care managers from local and service agencies.
Each member of the FAST makes a commitment to attend the meetings and signs a formal agreement that outlines the obligations of membership. Service on FAST is by invitation only.
Consultation is provided at team meetings and individually by telephone on a limited basis. Cases that are reviewed often involve elder abuse by:
- A family member
- A care taker (i.e. home health worker or board-and-care owner)
- An institution or professional (i.e. loan brokers, mortgage foreclosure consultants, etc.)
- The misuse of Powers of Attorney or other legal documents
