“Change is going to happen from the top down, not waiting for a bad agent to get turned in to adult protective services, to then get prosecuted -that is not how change is going to happen. It’s really going to happen when the companies themselves start looking at those trends and the data and reining people in, that’s absolutely how it’s going to happen” - Shawna Reeves

In this episode of GET READY!, I spoke with Shawna Reeves who is the Director of Elder Abuse Prevention at the Institute on Aging. Shawna and I discussed best practices that insurance agents can implement to help reduce elder financial abuse. We also covered how older adults (and their families) can keep them from being the victims of financial abuse.
