The seminars, designed for professionals, para-professionals, and other caregivers who work with older adults are free of charge and include a light breakfast.

Senate Aging Committee Launches Anti-Fraud Hotline and Web Form for Older Adults
The U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging has set up a new, toll-free hotline (1-855-303-9470) to help older adults who suspect fraud or a scam may be occurring. The hotline will make it easier for older Americans to report suspected fraud and find assistance for themselves or for someone they know. A team of investigators will help figure out what steps to take to combat possible investment scams, identity theft, bogus sweepstakes and lottery schemes, Medicare and Social Security fraud, and a variety of other consumer issues.
Anyone with information about suspected fraud should reach out to an investigator by telephone (9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. EST) or through a web form that will send an email to the investigative team.
