Knowing what is out there and being able to avoid walking into situations is a big part of the battle against senior scams, but there’s a lot more that can be done.

1. Know that you can fall prey to a scam, no matter who you are. Phone scams alone cost Americans about $9.5 billion in 2017. Once you accept that it can happen to you, be smart. The next couple of action items are especially helpful in that regard.
2. Check and verify information provided to you.
3. Don’t sign anything you don’t understand.
4. Report suspicions and worries to more than one individual who you trust.

Companionship and Community in Senior Living
Mounting evidence shows that companionship and community are a key component to overall health. No longer are they seen as sitting a few rungs up Maslow’s hierarchy of needs; they are foundational to your well-being. This is true across all ages, including seniors. Feeling extreme loneliness, for example, has been shown to increase an older person’s chances of premature death by 14 percent. 
 
A myriad of factors are weighed when deciding to move into a senior living community. The opportunity for companionship and community should be one of them. When researching different senior living options, investigate the opportunities for social connections and interactions at each community.
