“It’s difficult to distinguish between fraudulent and legitimate offers,” commented Debbie Cunningham, president of Northstar Bank. “Our goal is to help prevent elder financial abuse through awareness and training.”
Today, more than 40,000 elderly and infirmed Veterans live in our nation’s 160 Veterans nursing homes. These brave men and women served our country and defended the freedom we all enjoy today. Our Veterans deserve the very best we can give them. We are proud to have created and sustained a banking industry initiative to provide the nationally-acclaimed Senior Crimestoppers program to every Veterans nursing home at no cost to the facilities or their residents which will enable them to live out their lives in safe, secure environments with and enhanced quality of life. Join us as we honor our Veterans for their service.
