Older adults with decisional incapacity are at great risk for frauds and financial abuse under today's consumer-directed economic society. Today, conservators are served by a wide variety of professionals and non-professionals, and therefore, standardized gerontology education is potentially a major consideration for all conservators. The purpose of this project was to develop a gerontology curriculum for conservators to provide bio-psycho-social knowledge of the aging process in conjunction with their education on fiduciary matters. By comprehending aging holistically through gerontology education, it is expected that conservators will more effectively manage the affairs of incapacitated elderly persons. This project also presents content on adult learning principles, and includes relevant case studies and student evaluation forms. Three expert reviewers evaluated the curriculum and offered recommendations for expansion.
