Aging Insights, Investigating Financial Abuse

The New Jersey Foundation for Aging (NJFA) is pleased to announce the release of a new episode of Aging Insights. On this episode, Investigating Financial Abuse, which will air in January, we define financial abuse and talk about protections.

Aging Insights programs offer information about aging issues and services. The show is broadcast on over 60 public access stations and may also be seen on NJFA’s website,

The New Jersey Foundation for Aging (NJFA) is a non-profit with the primary goal to empower elders to live in the community with independence and dignity. The strategies to age well are voluminous. Consequently, the Foundation uses several messaging platforms to highlight resources to age well. For example, Aging Insights is a ½ hour TV program that is produced monthly by the Foundation, or Renaissance magazine which can also be found online at

NJFA’s Deputy Director, Melissa Chalker hosts this episode with guests Maria Aberasturi from Bergen County Adult Protective Services and Sylvia Presto, of the Bergen County Prosecutors Office.

This show and the work of the NJ Foundation for Aging are made possible by donors. To make a donation to NJFA, please visit our website, or call the office, 609-421-0206 for more information. Sponsorship spots are also available for future shows.

Viewers may also visit NJFA’s website to take the online survey on Aging Insights where they can provide comments on the show and suggest future topics the program should address. To learn more about the work of the Foundation visit or call 609-421-0206.
