How Does Massachusetts Re-opening Impact Our Seniors

KEEPING SENIORS SAFE WHILE MASSACHUSETTS RE-OPENS

Massachusetts phased approach to re-opening requires the support of everyone. As essential healthcare workers, the team at ABC has had the benefit of working throughout this pandemic and we have a clear understanding of infection control. We’ve followed the guidelines established and it is important to note that we all must continue to respect these guidelines. As Governor Baker said, “the virus remains with us throughout the opening process.” But what does this mean for our seniors?

SENIORS MUST REMAIN HOME UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY

The government continues to urge that seniors (age 65 and older) remain home unless absolutely necessary. ABC provides MANY of the key programs seniors need to remain safe in their homes including:
  • Shopping
  • Companionship
  • Homemaking
  • Personal Care
  • Alzheimer’s/Dementia Specialized Caregivers
  • In-Home Modifications
  • Medication Management
  • Skilled Nursing Visits
  • 24/7 Care/Live-in Caregivers
  • and more

NOW OFFERING: NON-CONTACT SHOPPING

This program enables clients to safely get their groceries, necessary household items and prescriptions without ever having to leave the house and without having to have any contact with a worker because the worker will leave the items at the door or just inside the door- whichever the client prefers!

ABC SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

  • Utilizing technology for team meetings to ensure teams are up-to-date and that any organizational needs are addressed
Our Management Team participates in weekly calls with the Home Care Aid Council and Department of Public Health. Protocols continue to evolve and develop according to recommendations from these authoritative bodies along with recommendations from Governor Charlie Baker and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). All workers are immediately notified of any changes in protocols and/or any additional safety measures that are established so that we can continue to deliver the best possible care to our clients.

Scams Increase During Holidays

Scammers Prey on Us During Our Busiest Days – What You Need to Watch For

Scams occur any time within the course of the year however the following scams appear to be more prevalent during the holiday season:

Online Shopping / Internet Scams

With the advances in technology, it has become easier than ever before for scammers to trick unsuspecting shoppers. They design websites that so closely mimic valid merchant websites it can be nearly impossible to detect that it is a fraudulent site. Unfortunately, in this scam, shoppers fall prey during their online shopping sprees whereby they check out and provide their credit card information but the goods purchased are instead sent to the scammer or the scammer just takes the money. No goods are delivered to the shopper however the money they “spent” has been taken.

Similarly, one of the most popular internet scams involve seniors downloading fake anti-virus software. This appears on your computer via a pop-up alleging that your current anti-virus software is out-of-date which allows scammers to access personal information on your computers. Seniors might also respond to phishing emails that look like legitimate communication sent by their bank or a merchant they recently ordered from which is actually sent by scammers. Through these phishing emails, the senior may be asked to confirm or enter bank information or update their credit card information but, in reality, all of this information is being confirmed for the scammer to take full advantage.

With regard to internet scams, it is always better to be safe than sorry.  You can find more information about current scams and helpful tips helpful tips for determining whether a website is fake, fraudulent or a scam at our website.

The IRS Scam
Scammers use fear and intimidation in this type of scam whereby they claim to be from the IRS and state that the senior owes back taxes and urges the person to “pay the amount owed” via a prepaid credit card to avoid possible legal action.

Don’t be fooled by these con artists that pretend to be from the IRS. The IRS does not call about collections nor would they ever ask for payment via a prepaid credit card or threaten arrest.
Disaster Relief / Charity Scam
The holidays are a time for giving. Scammers know this and try to take advantage of this generosity by pretending to be someone who is part of a disaster relief program or someone soliciting donations for a charitable organization.

There are many ways to make charitable donations during the holiday season through reputable sources. You will often see someone from the Salvation Army ringing the bell outside department stores and grocery stores. You may see a “Giving Tree” at your local house of worship that collects items for needy children around the holidays. Do not provide credit card information to anyone over the phone claiming to be from a charitable organization. Instead, end the call, research the organization and then make a donation via a secure website. To find a charity or to check the validity of a charitable organization, visit www.charitynavigator.org or check the Better Business Bureau website for more information

The Grandparent Scam
In this scam, a scammer calls a senior pretending to be their grandchild. The person on the other line asks the elder if they know who is calling and when the grandparent guesses the name of one of their grandchildren, the scammer pretends to be that grandchild. The “grandchild” then makes a plea for money after telling the elder that they are in some sort of financial trouble, that they need help affording gifts for the family, they need money to pay for their college tuition etc. The scammer on the other end of the phone asks their “grandparent” if they can send money using Western Union or MoneyGram to help them out.  They plead with the “grandparent” not to tell anyone about their situation. Once your money is received by the scammer they consider it a successful transaction. The scammers will usually call again in the future to take advantage for as many times as they can.

You know your grandchildren. Pay attention to the voice of the person on the other line and the story they are telling you. If you say to yourself, “that doesn’t sound like my grandchild’s voice” or if you can’t imagine that your grandchild would have ended up in a scenario quite like the one you are being told, don’t fall for it. Instead, hang up the phone call and call the alleged grandchild directly and ask them if they just called you.

Sweepstakes or Lottery Scams
“Congratulations, you’re a winner!”
This scheme usually involves a scammer contacting seniors by mail or telephone and telling them that they have won a prize. However they must pay  in order to receive their prize. Scammers send a fake check to the senior to deposit in their bank account. The scammer knows it will take some time for the bank to reject the check. Meanwhile, the victim has sent the scammer money through wire transfer for fees or taxes on the prize earnings. When the check doesn’t clear, the “winner” realizes they were victimized and that the money they sent to the scammer is gone.

If you get this kind of call and feel it is “too good to be true” because you can’t remember ever entering a drawing for a prize or raffle, that’s because it IS too good to be true- it’s a scam! Had you really won a prize, no up-front payment of fees or taxes would be necessary. If you get a call like this, what you need to do is plain and simple…hang up!
