CPAR - 2020/July, Seg.03 - The Elder Financial Abuse Epidemic: How CPAs Can Make a Difference

Course Overview
The American population is aging every day. The number of Americans aged 65 and older is projected to nearly double from 52 million in 2018 to 95 million by 2060. With the oldest Baby Boomers well into their 70's, a multibillion-dollar niche in accounting is developing in the elder care arena.

Martin Shenkman, CPA, discusses the importance of elder care and the role of the CPA.
