As some of you may know, I write a monthly column – As I See It –  for an online publication called Age in Place.

I was honored to also have an opportunity to interview with the editor of the publication, Mark Hager, for a feature called Smart Retirement Life.

In the interview, I talk about financial abuse of the elderly including:

  • Understanding elder fraud and financial abuse
  • Tips on protecting your loved ones
  • What to do if it happens to your family member
