As part of the Home Instead offensive to the invisible criminals…the scammers, the con artists and the tricksters who are defrauding our elderly population out of valuables.
Home Instead Westminster has decided to make its own contribution. We are visiting as many community groups as we can to raise awareness of the scams targeted at older people and advise how they can protect themselves. Our awareness talks explain why older people are targeted by scammers, the main types of scams and the techniques used to convince you to part with your money. We are also providing individuals with a toolkit of information about scams, which contain checklists for you to refer to.
We have so far done our presentation to sheltered housings, retirement housings, community centres and Day centres in Westminster and Southwark.
We even did a special presentation for the Elderly abuse awareness day in partnership with Age UK at their day centre in Stone end.
A great thank you to all the participants for their active contribution and for sharing their personal stories with the group.
