Program Description

Description

This program discusses senior's vulnerability to scams which can be uncomfortable and embarrassing for any generation. Although seniors may be interested in learning how to manage and protect their money, they may resist sharing their financial management choices. It is comforting to frame this training as empowering the individual to take advantage of available resources and begin making incremental steps to ensure their economic security by being proactive in safeguarding their money.

This 60-minute program is led by Erica Knighton, Cooperative Extension Program (CEP) Family and Community Health (FCH)- Fort Bend County Agent and is designed to provide participants with a basic understanding of the types of scams targeting seniors and how to protect themselves from becoming a victim.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information, call 281-238-2100.
