The Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation is pleased to announce our relationship with the Indiana Healthcare Association. Their backing of Senior Crimestoppers – a multi-faceted, nationally acclaimed crime prevention program helping to prevent abuse, neglect, theft, vandalism, substandard care, fraud and any unethical behavior – will help bring safety and security to seniors in the Hoosier state. The program covers not only vulnerable seniors but employees, family members, and even visitors in Medicare/Medicaid-certified nursing homes, assisted or independent living communities, HUD subsidized elderly apartments or any State Veterans Homes across the country. Senior Crimestoppers protects over 100,000 senior residents nationwide. We are delighted to be named as an endorsed partner.
The Senior Crimestoppers program includes a coordinated set of components that work together to prevent and resolve crime. Having the program in place has deterred incidents from occurring and most facilities have become members of the program not because they have problems, but because they wish to prevent problems from taking root. The proven program and its components improve a residents’ overall quality of life.
Since its inception, the total number of crime incidents at participating facilities has been reduced by over 95%.
First International Bank & Trust partnered with CRA Partnership to sponsor the Senior Crimestoppers program at St. Gabriel’s Community. Our own Ron Brooks was present and got the opportunity to share more about us on a local news station KFYR TV. See the segment here:
…to share the news with you that one of our former team members, Kay Joest, passed away on May 13, 2019. Kay served as Managing Director of Senior Crimestoppers from September 2002 until her retirement in December of 2017. We’ll all remember Kay for her kindness, dedication, and passion for protecting the elderly. She will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure to know her.
