Scams and Older Adults This is adapted from a recent Seabury blog post by Christine Bitzer, LICSW, the Assistant Director of Seabury Resources for Aging’s Care Management service. Care managers work with older adults on an individual basis to advise them on a variety of issues and services; such as home care, transportation, medical/legal assistance and housing. Families are put at ease having a knowledgeable guide to provide recommendations and resources to meet their unique needs. This expertise can save families money and reduce stress and time away from work. Christine can be reached at 202-364-0020 or email her at Cbitzer@seaburyresources.org.

S Postal Inspectors warn us of the many scams that are underway this spring. We’ve all received pieces of mail that we know are fake; the airline tickets, the “You’ve

won a Million Dollars” – which in letters too small for many older adults to catch – clarifies that you have a chance to win that money. Often scammers request the tax money up front. And yes, we do need to pay taxes, but if it was real, taxes would be deducted from the winnings. Sometimes the “winner” will receive a real check. It’s not the full amount and the victim is asked to cash the check immediately, while simultaneously sending a money order or cash. Needless to say, the check bounces as soon as the money is sent. And recently emails have been sent indicating that the recipient has a package and should click the link to find out its status. These are scams, don’t click on the link or print the label. If you or someone you know has been a victim, report it to the uS Postal Service Postal Inspectors. These are federal employees who investigate mail fraud. Visit their website, www.postalinspectors.uspis.gov and look for the link under “contact us” to file a report. This particular link alerts you to the schemes that are out there. urgent matters should be directed to your local police station.

Senior Celebration

Tuesday, May 7 at noon, Washington national Cathedral

Teens attending the BBYO International Convention spent a day with Age-In-Place® in service to older adults. They cleaned, talked with clients, and shared their great, good natures.

most days of the week age-in-place® Volunteer Coordinator ingrid Heiberg leads a group of volunteers to an older adult’s home where they quickly get to work. Volunteer teams mow the lawn, rake leaves, and pull weeds outside while another team goes inside to do some heavy cleaning, dusting those high up and low down places that the homeowner isn’t able to reach. The age-in-place® program seeks donations of cleaning products, lawn and garden tools, and a trailer for the program. If you are interested in donating items or organizing a collection at your office, congregation, Scout troop, or school to support age-in-place®, contact Ingrid at 202-635-9384 or iHeiberg@seaburyresources.org.
