The Pasadena Senior Commission is focusing efforts in launching a fraud prevention campaign called “Think Prevention First.” The campaign is aimed at combating fraud and scams targeting seniors to ensure residents are empowered to identify report and stop such activities before becoming a victim. For this effort to be successful, enlisting community partners to bring together resources and providing education and outreach to residents is critical. To get the word out on preventing fraud, the Senior Commission is hosting educational workshops within senior care facilities and various program sites. In addition, the Commission has collaborated with State Senator Carol Liu to host a series of workshops this spring. The first workshop is on Friday, February 27 from 10 am to noon at the Robinson Park Recreation Center. To learn more about how to host a “Think Prevention First” workshop, attend the upcoming fraud prevention workshop and facts about preventing fraud, please see the attached resources below.
