Standing Watch Over Grandma’s Money

Families and caregivers nationwide have stories about an older person close to them who has been taken advantage of financially. We need your help to spread the word that families and communities need to put checks and balances in place to protect our elders. One of the key ways to do this is to appoint a trusted person to have view-only access to the older person’s accounts. So whether there is someone helping to pay the bills, or unscrupulous sales people or grandma has a “new best friend,” the monitor can look for unusual changes in spending patterns.
