Buying a gift for a senior dad who is retired is even more of a challenge than when he was working. At least then you could add to the closet full of shirts and ties or give him a day-of-the-week set of commuter mugs.
Many dads go into retirement with few, if any, hobbies so a gift toward a hobby isn’t always an option. Here are a few things every retired dad could use:
The National Council on Aging says that financial scams targeting seniors have become so prevalent that they’re now considered “the crime of the 21st century.” Senior men are especially vulnerable because when taken advantage of, their pride is hurt and they do not like to admit that they have been targeted and victimized. Being stubborn about admitting how they were taken advantage of can mean the ruse is not exposed in time to stop it or catch the culprit. That can be very costly in money and more so in identity theft.
Senior Fraud Alert removes Dad from the equation because all callers soliciting are referred to a Keeping In Touch Solutions staff person. If the call is from a legitimate organization, the information is passed on to the caregiver. If it is a scam or con artist, the solicitation is stopped immediately. Your aging loved one does not have to make a judgment or listen to the caller at all.
