Please come by, maybe you can help a neighbor or family member?
Maybe you will learn where to report abuse!
Maybe you will find a career where you can help seniors!
I have been involved with Elder Watch of Anderson County since 2012 and have learned so much about the different types of Abuse:
Physical at home, in a home, by family or strangers and more
Financial everything from taking money from their banking account to squatting in their home and running up utilities
Medical including taking their Prescriptions
Scams and how people prey on the lonely and uninformed
There are also many benefits available to seniors!
If your income is below certain limits, you may qualify for Extra Help with your Medicare Part B premium ($104.90) and your Prescription Drug Costs! (FREE assistance applying)
Learn the difference between $100,000 coverage for $15 a month Accident insurance and actual Life Insurance (hint: does not pay for a heart attack).
Property tax benefits depending on income levels!
