  • stop misusing or threatening to misuse your money, property, or state or federal benefits (committing financial exploitation);
  • stop sexually abusing or exploiting you;
  • return to you or reimburse you for any money, property, or state or federal benefits taken from you through exploitation or other misuse;
  • stop providing care or stop working anywhere that provides care for adults;
