Seniors, Do Not Panic!

Seniors, Do Not Panic!

Is the media keeping us informed or creating mass panic? Every hour there is a discovery or latest update strategically flashing on our screens. When the news that cases of the novel coronavirus were verified in over 40 states, pandemonium broke out. Americans all over the nation jumped into a frenzy emptying supermarkets nationwide. This hysteria left many individuals without toiletries, food or water. Fear is a powerful tool and marketing tactic used by industries worldwide to sell. Do not fall victim to these tactics! Panicking will only make our situation worse and cause mass hysteria. Yes, the health risks posed by this virus have the potential of being severe for our community, but we must remain calm. By practicing social distancing and staying informed, we can reduce the spread of the virus. Through excellent hygiene and preventative care, we can fight the spread of this virus.

A Touch of Sugar

A Touch of Sugar

Have you been recently diagnosed with diabetes? You are not alone, more than 100 million Americans have diabetes or prediabetes, and the number is steadily growing. There are two types of diabetes, type-1 diabetes and type-2 diabetes. In type-1 diabetes, the body cannot produce insulin which is a hormone that regulates the amount of sugar in the blood. In type-2 diabetes, the body can not properly use insulin. The most common form of diabetes is type 2, and it usually develops in adults over age 45. The cause of type-2 diabetes is still a mystery, but it is known that genetics and factors like being overweight play a role. The good news is that both types of diabetes are manageable. By exercising and eating healthy people diagnosed with diabetes can live an extraordinary life. There are also methods like insulin therapy and other treatments, that help individuals manage their condition. In the next few weeks, we will be breaking down...

Scammers, Seniors, and the Coronavirus

Scammers, Seniors, and the Coronavirus

Seniors stay vigilant; criminals are taking advantage of our community. While the world bands together to stop the spread of the new Coronavirus, swindlers are profiting from the pandemic. Scammers are using fear to exploit worried families by promising them cures for the virus. There is no need to panic, but just like everything else, being informed is always the first step. Here are a few ways you can avoid Coronavirus scams: Avoid clicking on links from unknown sources (they could download viruses onto your computer or devices) Be wary of emails from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) To find current and official information about the virus, click here or visit the World Health Organization (WHO) Do not open emails from “experts” stating they have information about the virus. Dismiss online offers for vaccinations. Ignore offers for Coronavirus curing products (ex. vaccines, pills, potions, lotions, tablets, prescriptions or over-the-counter products) online or in stores Research charities and...

Have You Done Your Taxes Yet?

Have You Done Your Taxes Yet?

This year, the cases for tax scams are expected to increase with every week that taxes are not filed. The more time you provide scammers to file your tax return for you, the more chance you have of not receiving it yourself. While we do not want to induce anxiety, we want you to be armed with the facts so you are not a victim this tax season. Identity theft can happen to anyone and it happens more frequently during tax season. If you have filed your taxes through a website, your chances of being scammed are even higher. When you are scammed of your tax return, it is very difficult to try to get that money back. The IRS is a very slow-moving entity with outdated systems to process requests, so it is very unlikely that you would be able to receive compensation. Additionally, you would need many hours of time and professional assistance in order to file a request...
