To help defend our Seniors in the London Borough of Hillingdon & Harrow, Home Instead have been working beside Think Jessica to create an educational kit. Our Senior Fraud Prevention Kit is available to all members of the local Community and is completely free. It contains loads of useful information, advice and even a few handy checklists to help keep you and your family safe.

To obtain a copy, simply give us a call on 0203 226 0930 or send us a message via the "Contact Us" section of the site here or our main website and click on the information and resources tab.

Ginette Meade, owner of the Home Instead office Ruislip & Harrow said “The faceless criminals who use email, telephone and post to lure their victims into parting with their life savings, personal banking information and other assets, can prey in particular on the elderly, who they see as easy targets for their crimes. “These types of scams defraud people in the UK of an estimated £3.5 billion each year and have very serious consequences for the elderly, who can suffer devastating emotional distress, loss of confidence, trust and independence.”

We will be holding scam aware workshops to the general public which will give information about the most common scams used to target elderly people and what to do if someone has been scammed.

The workshops will be held at our office and can be held in the local community, workplaces and assisted living facilities, please contact us if you would like to arrange this or take part in the workshop.
