World Elder Abuse Awareness Day: Date, Theme, History, Importance, And ...

Did you know that June 15th is Elder Abuse Awareness Day?  I didn't!  Every year on June 15, World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) is commemorated in America and worldwide. But it's a good reminder for us in the real estate business to keep our elders in mind when it comes to their financial/asset affairs.  

Having had a couple members of my elderly family pass, I can tell you from experience that having one's financial affairs in order is crucial!  Have your loved ones prepare their wills, trusts, and any other personal wishes before they are unable to do so.  The last thing you want is to have bullying from family or friends which, unfortunately, happens.  

Charles Schwab issued this newsletter today with some other very important details on helping elders.  Here is another link from the Justice Department with more tips in regard to elderly fraud scams (romance scams, tech support scams, grandparent scams, government impersonation scam, etc.).  Do your best to help elders, both those you know and those you are acquainted with.  It is super important!
