The baby boomer population is often known as the “builders”.the Baby are reported to be the wealthiest generation in U.S. history.

as the baby boomer age…experts believe elder abuse and exploitation will continue to grow and with such large gaps in reporting and investigating, we truly may never know just how big the problem is.
