You love your parents. You don't want anything to happen to them. When you see your mom getting behind the wheel, you feel scared every time she heads out to run an errand. What if she misses a red light? Or doesn't hear a siren coming up behind her?
Senior scams are something that we hear about all the time. They happen all over the world every day. Scams can happen on almost any medium, so it is important to be knowledgeable and use your intuition when someone reaches out to you in a way that seems a bit off.

Loneliness. It’s a feeling that just about everyone is familiar with. I’m sure we’ve all had a time where we’re just feeling lonely and wish we had someone to talk to. For some people, particularly seniors, this feeling is a way of life. According to the 2014 U.S. Census, 34 percent of people aged 65 or older live alone. There are many people in this world that do not have close family or a support system in place. In this case, living alone can become incredibly difficult when there are no friends or family to reach out to. Loneliness is a risk factor in seniors that may cause illness, depression or even death.
“Everything in an organization is about what happens next. Nothing we do is accomplished without people.” – Steve Proctor, CEO
