Elder abuse awareness event planned

| June 13, 2017

COSHOCTON – On Friday, June 16, the Coshocton Senior Center and Job & Family Services/Adult Protective Services will partner for a day of Elder Abuse Awareness. The event will be at the Senior Center at 11 a.m. with The Ohio Attorney General’s Office providing a presentation on “Senior Scams”.

Seniors age 60 and up are particularly vulnerable to fraud and scams. However, many incidents likely go unreported.  Learn about the latest scams targeting our senior population and find out how to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Lt. Dean Hettinger from the Coshocton Sheriff’s Department will be present and a representative from People’s Bank will be available to answer questions about financial exploitation.

We are encouraging everyone to wear purple, which symbolizes the growing problem of elder abuse around the world. The person that gets the most creative with their purple attire will win a gift card! Please call the Senior Center at 740-622-4852 for a lunch reservation and plan to join us.
