In this informative webinar, Shawna Reeves of the Elder Abuse Prevention at the Institute on Aging, speaks about the VA’s Aid and Attendance benefit and the scammers who exploit it for their own gain. After watching it, you will be able to spot an Aid and Attendance scam and know where to refer an older veteran who has fallen victim to one. You will also learn where to send older veterans who would like to explore — for free — whether they might qualify for veterans benefits. Finally, you will learn about the innovative Veterans Benefits Protection Project in San Francisco. Neil Granger, a veteran in the life and disability insurance industry, also joins in with Ms. Reeves in this webinar.
In addition, Libby Anderson of the Long Term Care Ombudsman program at the Council on Aging Southern California speaks about the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program, a state mandated program that provides advocacy for those residents of skilled nursing and residential care facilities.
