Identity theft is rampant in today’s tech-savvy environment. However, fraud is not reserved to those relying on technology to pay bills and consume. While driving to an appointment the other day I heard a news report about “grandchildren” calling seniors form overseas saying they were urgently in need of money. Sadly, some people fell for the scam. So, I took some time to look up a pretty good article on protecting seniors from scammers written by the National Council on Aging. Take a look and be safe!
It is not always top of mind given that our parents spent their lives making things safe for us. However, as people age. it is important to consider safety in the home. We came across this article that offers some great ideas to do just that: Home Safety for Seniors
Caring Companions of Atlanta, LLC loves celebrating life and found ourselves doing just that when we stumbled upon a gentleman doing this!
Old (or young) is more of a state-of-mind to us. Something tells us, this gentleman feels exactly the same way!!!
