The session lasts an hour and is an initiative of The Alzheimer’s Society, encouraging a greater awareness and understanding of dementia.

Protect yourself from Scammers
Protect yourself or your loved one from the danger of scams with a little help from Home Instead Senior Care. Home is where an older person should feel safest. Scammers however, have found a way to invade the secure lives of seniors with scammers targeting older peoples post, the internet and telephone, as well as unsecured documents.
The growing incidents of scams involving older people is putting many seniors at risk, threatening to strip them of their assets, their independence and their trust. That’s why Home Instead Senior Care has launched their Senior Fraud Protection Programme.
The programme aims to inform families and loved ones about fraud affecting older people and provides them with top tools and tips to avoid becoming a victim, including a FREE Senior Fraud Protection Toolkit, packed full of useful information and advice, plus a number of checklists.
