Older adults often are prime targets for con artists looking to steal their money, property or identification.

Home Instead Senior Care network has teamed up with the National Association of Triads to launch the Protect Seniors from Fraud program.Included in the program is a free Senior Fraud Protection Kit that contains a number of important tools to help families assess how likely their senior is to be a potential target of a scam and advice on how to protect them.

The Protect Seniors from Fraud program - developed with the expert assistance of the Triads - provides family caregivers with a number of important tools at ProtectSeniorsFromFraud.com. Included in the website's various resources is a Criminal Target Scale, which can help family caregivers assess how likely their senior is to be the potential target of a scam. A Senior Fraud Protection Kit also is available from the local franchise office.
