Protecting seniors from fraud is the goal behind a public campaign by local senior care experts. The Home Instead Senior Care Office is working to educate families and seniors about how to protect themselves. Retired Seargeant, Bob Patterson, says you have to be sensitive when engaging with an elder loved one in conversation about frauds and scams as it’s a sensitive subject for them. He says one way they are taken advantage of is through door-to-door fake charities. He says it’s best to stick to the charities you know, and don’t trust everyone who comes to the door.
