Senior Safety Presentation Arrives in Berrow (Somerset, UK)

 

The senior safety roadshow rolled into the picturesque village of Berrow in Somerset today (17th March), when the Berrow Active Living Group hosted the SCLT Public Presentation Team for one of their award-winning, senior safety sessions.

 

The bustling group of 25 older adults took part in a 40-minute, interactive safety presentation which was themed around avoiding the dangers of doorstep crime, as well as making the group aware of the pitfalls of other current scams and cons, which may be targeted at the older adult community.

 

The session included tips on avoiding the annoyance of unsolicited phone calls by registering with the telephone preference service, as well as general awareness of safe doorstep procedures and being prepared of the legal requirements around cold-callers to your door who offer unsolicited goods and/or services.

 

All the attendees also received a copy of the very latest edition of the Senior Siren magazine, which is jam-packed with senior safety tips and advice on staying safe at home and when out and about.

 

SCLT volunteer Ash Jones gave the presentation, he said; "It has been great meeting the members of this community group. The enthusiasm for independent living is tangible and by passing-on this safety advice, we hope that the SCLT will enable many older adults to remain in their homes, feeling safer, for long into the future"
