The growing incidence of senior scams is putting many older adults in harm’s way, threatening to strip them of their assets, their independence and their trust. A recent press release by Southern California Edison advised customers to be aware of a new telephone scam whereby the scammer demands immediate payment for allegedly past due electricity bills. The caller also demands that payments be made through a prepaid cash card such as a PayPal or Green Dot card.

CAREGivers should be vigilant to this kind of fraud. If you or the Client are contacted, ask for the caller’s name, department and business phone number. If the caller refuses to provide the information, hang up the phone and report the incident immediately to local police or SCE at (800) 655-4555. 

Seniors become scam targets often because they are isolated and lonely. Some scams are perpetrated by seemingly trusted people who work to build friendships with older adults and then prey on their vulnerabilities.

CAREGIVER OF THE MONTH -

Home Instead Senior Care is pleased to recognize Alicia Harris as CAREGiver of the Month for February.

Alicia joined our team August, 2012, with three years
of prior caregiving experience. She demonstrated confidence and enthusiasm from the start. Alicia was one of the first to RSVP for last fall’s Alzheimer’s C.A.R.E. Training, and eagerly gained new skills and techniques at these classes. She now joins our other skilled CAREGivers. Since receiving her training, she has
been assigned to a challenging client suffering from Alzheimer’s. Alicia commented that she is thrilled to have attended the training which prepared her to face client challenges with proper care tools and strategies.

Congratulations, Alicia!

FEBRUARY IS AMERICAN HEART MONTH

The American Heart Association’s hope is that people will become more aware of heart health and will educate themselves about how to help prevent heart disease. Start avoiding these bad habits and set yourself up for a lifetime of heart health.

Here are some heart disease risk factors you should know about:
· Fast Foods – contain high salt and fat contents. Choose healthier options such as salad. Balance your diet with lots of greens such as those you make at home.
· Alcohol – Binge drinking is especially bad for your heart health.
· Smoking – Is strongly associated with cancer and heart attack risk.
· Sugary Drinks – The amount of calories contained in these drinks can contribute to obesity and heart disease.
· Sedentary Lifestyle - Lack of fitness/exercise. A more active lifestyle is step one in lowering cardiovascular risk.
Attempt 30 minutes daily of cardiovascular exercise, such as walking, jogging, swimming, etc.
