Richard Eisenberg is on this episode to help us bring light to the dark reality of elder financial abuse. Nearly 1 in 20 seniors become victims of financial mistreatment or abuse, often left unnoticed and unresolved. Between con-artists and (sadly) family members who drain the savings of elderly people, around three billion dollars are stolen from seniors each year.
Knowing how to protect the elderly people in your life from financial ruin is extremely important. On this episode, Richard outlines a few ways to prevent your older family members and friends from getting scammed. He also shares ways to seek help and justice if you find that this is happening to someone you know.
This is such an important and timely issue to discuss – Elder Abuse Awareness Day just passed on June 13th. Listen in for some valuable tips and ideas to help you help the ones you love and spread awareness to your friends.
