The Classic at Hillcrest Greens to Host New Savvy Seniors Series

Beginning this February, The Classic at Hillcrest Greens is initiating a new seminar series for seniors.

Titled the "Savvy Seniors Series," the free monthly information sessions are open to the general public and will be held on the first Wednesday of the month from 3:45 to 5 p.m. Each session will feature a different speaker with a message focused on enhancing the quality of life for seniors.

The first session scheduled for Wednesday, February 7 is related to financial scams that target seniors. It's a harsh reality in today's world that seniors become prey of the ill-intentioned. Scammers are tricky and use a multitude of various techniques including sweepstakes scams, Medicare scams, credit card fraud, online scams, and investment schemes. During her presentation, "You've Just Won…Not!," local Eau Claire resident Jayne Redman will share insight on how seniors can equip themselves with the right information to avoid a scenario that could be financially devastating.

Light refreshments will be available along with door prize drawings. Registration for the February 7 presentation is required by calling 715-839-0200 by Monday, February 5.

The Classic at Hillcrest Greens, a senior living community located at 2455 Sawgrass Place in Altoona, Wisconsin provides housing and services for independent living, assisted living, and memory care residents.
