Protecting Against Elder Abuse

This week Brent and Rachel chat with the incredible Carolyn McClanahan, M.D., CFP, about how to protect our loved ones and clients from Elder Abuse. We focus on the financial side of things. The conversation gets into discussing the issue, its prevalence, and practical ways it can be addressed.
