Here at Keeping in Touch Solutions we understand senior citizens. We know caregivers find seniors’ willingness to trust wonderful, yet worrisome, especially when aging loved ones live alone. They may trust strange callers on the telephone and those who show up, unannounced, at their door.
They are members of the generation that still believes in respect. So when a caller announces that they are calling from the bank, for example, in need of personal information, many seniors won’t question the call. That’s exactly why so many thieves target this age group. Too often, they are easy victims.
To help your loved one stay safe inside and outside of their home, here are a few pointers:
A good idea is to place signs beside the home telephone reminding your loved one to never give any caller personal information such as social security numbers, birthdates, etc. and beside each exit door to never open the door for any stranger.
Worrying about the security of a senior loved one, especially those who might live alone is part of every day for caregivers. Call Keeping in Touch Solutions to provide an extra set of helping hands checking on the safety and security of your loved one every day.
A daily check-in call could be the lifeline, the joy you give someone that makes the biggest difference in their perception of what old age is like.
