The total cost of elder financial exploitation is anywhere between $3 billion and $36 billion a year.
For individuals and their families, it’s an issue that cuts deeper than just the cost of that exploitation.
Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio spent the last year digging into this issue. He’ll soon host a series of special coverage and a hour-long special titled “Brains and Losses.” That special will air on WDET on Tuesday, May 21, at 2 p.m.
Brancaccio joins Detroit Today to talk about his reporting and what we can do to protect ourselves and our families.
