Safety from scams
Older adults often are prime targets for con artists looking to steal their money, property or identifications.

Home Instead Senior Care network teamed up with the National Association of Triads to launch the Protect Seniors from Fraud program. The program includes a free Senior Fraud Protection Kit, which has tools to help a family decide if their senior is at risk of being scammed and information on how to protect the senior.

A free fraud education session for seniors and their families will be offered at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 19 at the Community Center, 233 W. Main St.

Presenters are scheduled to include the Fort Wayne Police Department Crime Prevention Unit, Better Business Bureau of Northeast Indiana and Allen County Prosecutor's Adult Protective Services Division.

For a free Senior Fraud Protection Kit, call the local Home Instead Senior Care office at 485-2424.
