UConnToday: Dementia can be caused by a number of diseases, but the most common is Alzheimer’s, which affects 5.7 million people in the U.S. today. There’s still a stigma attached to the disease; some fear that it’s contagious, while others are ashamed to admit that a friend or family member is quietly suffering.

The grandparent scam comes out during spring break, so there's a sense of legitimacy to the call," Gmoser said. The spring break scam is where a person calls an elderly person and claims their grandchild in another state or country is in trouble and needs money. Gmoser said scammers play on what's most important to our loved ones such as family and healthcare. READ MORE
