One Right at Home franchisee has been informing vulnerable seniors in his area how to avoid getting caught up in a scam.

A Right at Home franchisee from Avon, Ohio has been helping the elderly and vulnerable in his community to educate themselves about the dangers of scams and sharing his top tips on how to avoid becoming a victim.

Geoff Myers, who owns his local Right at Home franchise, invited local elderly people along to a presentation earlier this month. Around 30 people attended the event and topics covered included theft, scams, abusive caregivers and what to about them and how to deal with perpetrators of crime within their own families. Myers warned the attendees that thieves can be very creative and made them aware of how even the most insignificant personal information can be used against you.

He advised everyone to be as safe as possible, by adopting good habits like shredding documents, checking your bank account regularly to make sure youre aware of any unusual activity and ignoring and deleting any suspicious-sounding emails. Myers explained to the elderly attendees why theyre often targeted by criminals looking for easy targets.

"They (the perpetrators) see seniors as generous and trusting. They are career criminals who practice, practice, practice."

The home care franchisee presented information that was approved by the Society for Certified Senior Advisors and aimed to educate everyone in a friendly, interactive way that would help them stay safe against opportunistic criminals.

Myers is one of more than 400 franchisees across the globe that provide compassionate care to the elderly and vulnerable. Its a member of the British Franchise Association and is regularly named as one of the best home care franchises on the planet, making it a fantastic choice for anyone looking to start their own business in the care sector.
