Contractors board invites seniors to attend programs

The Nevada State Contractors Board, in partnership with state legislators and state agency representatives, is hosting four senior awareness programs in Las Vegas, Boulder City and Carson City in the coming weeks. They will highlight a variety of scams that target seniors, help seniors identify the warning signs, provide tips and tools to help seniors protect themselves, as well as offer resource information on where to report incidents of abuse.

“Seniors are often a vulnerable target of predators because of their trusting nature and sustained resources,” said Margi A. Grein, NSCB executive officer.  “Our program provides seniors the information and tools to recognize warning signs and protect them from becoming victimized. We encourage all seniors and their family members in the surrounding areas to attend.”

There is no cost to attend; light refreshments will be made available.

Local programs are scheduled for:

n Oct. 25: 10 a.m. at Doolittle Senior Center, 1950 N. J St. Las Vegas. Participants: NSCB, Aging and Disability Services Division, Senior Medicare Patrol

n Oct. 29: 10:30 a.m. at Boulder City Senior Center, 813 Arizona St., Boulder City. Participants: Assemblyman Cresent Hardy, NSCB, Aging and Disability Services Division, Senior Medicare Patrol
