Financial Vulnerability Assessments
Whether you are concerned about a loved one or you’re a professional with concerns about a client’s vulnerability, Nellie Supports staff can ensure you have all of the information to ensure you can safeguard those most vulnerable in our society.

Our Financial Assessment services consist of three separate assessments:
- Financial Decision Tracker
The Financial Decision Tracker (FDT) is our base assessment and looks at choice, rationale, understanding, and appreciation of a financial decision in the context of the client’s values. This short assessment helps to identify whether there is cause for concern and if so, whether a more comprehensive assessment is required.
- Family and Friends Interview
Family & Friends Interview (FFI) is a structured, multiple-choice interview of the older adult’s relative, friend or trusted professional that encourages elaboration. The risk scoring system indicates risk perception, or how concerned the relative or friend is about the older adult’s financial decision-making and vulnerability to financial exploitation.
- Financial Vulnerability Assessment
The first section of the Financial Vulnerability Assessment (FVA) looks at the intellectual factors (choice, rationale, understanding, appreciation) at play in making a specific financial decision
The remaining three sections determine the contextual factors surrounding finances, such as acquaintances with large influence over the client’s finances and decisions, and how susceptible the client may be to these influences. Contextual factors can overwhelm the intellectual factors and impair the ability to make decisions.
