Our Brio Retirement Living colleagues at Landale Court in Chapelton played host to Aberdeenshire Police representatives this weekend, helping customers learn more about fraud.
Crime Reduction Officers visited the emerging Brio community to speak with customers and offer them advice on a range of issues, including how to avoid pension scams, phone scams, investment scams, as well as guiding attendees about how they can stay safe online. The officers also distributed information from Age Concern and Safer Scotland – the complete document can be viewed here.
Speaking after the event our Brio Retirement Living’s Director of Operations Karl Hallows said: “We are committed to creating communities in which our customers can live their best lives, with brilliantly-designed homes, green space, amenities and access to care that allow people to feel secure in later life.
“There are however still threats that prevail, with many older and vulnerable people falling foul of scams and fraud; by partnering with the Police, we hope to have given our customers the advice they need as they keep themselves safe. I thank so many of them for attending on the day.”
