Mills Meadow is inviting the local community to a free event for those wanting to find out more about keeping themselves or a loved one safe while living at home.
On Monday 1st July, from 11am - 12 noon, the team at Mills Meadow will open the doors to the care home for its ‘Staying safe and preventing scams’ event.
Community Engagement Officer, PC Simon Green, will be on hand to deliver an informative session on how to stay safe at home and will also offer expert information on fraud awareness and reporting a scam.
After the event there will be a Q&A session, refreshments and an opportunity to meet the team at Mills Meadow, as well as take a closer look at the care home.
Deputy home manager, Rebecca Calver, said: “Learning how to stay safe on the internet is beneficial for everyone, but it is particularly important for older people, who are often targets of fraud and cold calling. Here at Mills Meadow,we understand the importance of providing information and advice that will help to protect older people from targeted fraud.
“We are looking forward to welcoming Simon, who can provide professional guidance in this area, and we hope local people will take the opportunity to benefit from his expertise.”
