The Kathy Lee Parker show is an internet talk show. The topic for the November 20 show is elder financial abuse prevention, and how families can talk during the holidays about how to set up checks and balances that will reduce this risk.
Tracey Larsen, vice president and special projects manager at Bank of American Fork and the financial representative for the Governor’s Commission on Aging is representing the bank on the show. The show also features Nan Mendenhall, director of Adult Protective Services from the Utah Department of Aging and Adult Services. She will tell stories and give practical examples that families can use in their discussions.
