May 25, 2018

With more older adults than ever online and engaged in social media, seniors are at an ever-increasing threat that their financial and other personal information will be compromised.  

In fact, a recent study conducted by the Home Instead Senior Care network revealed some startling facts:

  • 50% of senior citizens do not use a password on at least one of their internet-enabled devices;
  • 1 in 5 seniors are going without an antivirus software; and
  • 38% of seniors say that someone has tried to scam them.

What’s more, family caregivers can lack the knowledge needed to protect their loved ones from these growing risks.

Whether you're a senior citizens or a family caregiver, you are invited to join us for this free workshop to learn about the cyber threats that can put older adults in jeopardy - and the best practices that they can employ to avoid becoming a scam target. 

DATE/TIME: Friday, May 25, 2018 @ 3 PM

PLACE: Delmanor Elgin Mills, 80 Elgin Mills Road East, Richmond Hill 

RSVP: InfoYorkRegion@HomeInstead.com
