Senior Fraud Hotline
A partnership between RSVP Volunteers of Central MA,
Central Massachusetts Agency on Aging, and Family Services of Central Massachusetts
The Senior Fraud Prevention Initiative helps seniors recognize, resist and report fraud.
When calling the HelpLine, you will find a peer who may have had a similar experience to yours. You will speak with a person trained and knowledgeable about what to do next; a confidante who cares about your fears. The volunteers answering these calls have been trained to identify the tell-tale signs of scams and frauds.
You are not alone.
RSVP’s Senior Fraud HelpLine receives calls from
9:00am to 4:00pm Monday through Friday
Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program
CMAA is pleased to offer seniors residing in nursing or rest homes
a continuing resource for resolving issues related to long-term care!
An Ombudsman visits residents in nursing and rest homes to investigate and resolve complaints related to personal care, their belongings, food matters, roommate problems, and other issues which impact their daily lives. Ombudsmen resolve complaints through discussion, negotiation, or referring issues to the State Ombudsman. They also provide residents, their families, and community members with information and advocacy.
These professionals are trained and certified by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs and here to help!
