    Piksel | Istock | Getty Images Older Americans lose an estimated $2.9 billion per year to financial scams. The House of Representatives is moving forward with an initiative aimed at helping stem those losses. On Wednesday, the chamber passed the Empowering States to Protect Seniors from Bad Actors Act by a vote of 371-48. The bipartisan measure will enable the Securities and Exchange Commission to help state enforcement agencies and task forces protect and educate seniors through the creation of a new Senior Investor Protection Grant Program.

In addition, money would also be devoted to educating seniors about financial scams. Bipartisan companion legislation was proposed in the Senate in January by Sens.

    MILLIONS of senior citizens qualify for monthly shipments of nutritious food through a little-known government program. The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) works to supplement the diets of elder Americans below a certain income threshold. 1The Commodity Supplemental Food Program provides more than 750,000 low-income seniors with food each monthCredit: Getty Images - Getty The program is administered by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and benefits 760,634 people each month. CSFP functions similarly to other government aid programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The federal government distributes funds and USDA food to public and private local agencies in each state. The states build out their own infrastructure to determine eligibility and get the food in the hands of people that need it.

    MEDIA, Pa. -- "The community here is great. It really changed my life because I don't have to do anything," said Jacquelin DeFilippo. "They clean my apartment, they cook my meals, they take me places. It's great."For the last five years, DeFilippo has been accustomed to humans responding to her needs at Wesley Enhanced Living (WEL) Main Line. But recently, she met her first robot."R2-D2, we named him," she joked.WEL hired their latest computerized staff members around the 2022 new year. Two "Matradee Robots" by Richtech Robotics use smart technology to avoid obstacles and navigate the dining hall."Before, they were carrying out hot plates, one in each hand. We've got walkers and all kinds of things in there and they can trip," said DeFilippo. "The robots just come up and they come to the right table and then the servers just put it on our table."Residents are charmed by the far-from-robotic personalities of each server."I look forward to coming down to dinner just to see it," said Rose Powers. "My birthday will be coming up and I can't wait to...
    At least once a week for the last 14 years, 86-year-old Joe Rubi has been greeted at his Pittsburg home by a friendly visitor bearing gifts, like beef, chicken, pasta, salad and bread. The Meals on Wheels food is never accompanied by seasoning, since each client has different dietary restrictions, but it does come with a friendly smile, conversation and check-in. For Rubi, a retired naval shipyard machinist and Korean War veteran who loves to socialize, the visits are just as much about the people he meets as the nourishment. “The ladies are special; they take time to talk to their clients and see how it’s going. That type of interaction, it strikes home to me,” Rubi said. “God bless ’em.” The five frozen meals Rubi receives every week are among the half a million served annually by the Meals on Wheels Diablo Region, which provides roughly 6,700 seniors per year with not just food but also services ranging from exercise programs to social interaction to fall prevention, where volunteers will install grab bars and railings to help their clients...
    Birds of a feather here. A handful of conservative Democrats in the House and two in the Senate are refusing to sign off on an annual $350 billion boost to social spending to enact President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better social and economic plan. The move deliberately pits vulnerable communities against each other—millions of chronically underserved people—apparently just because they can. Greg Sargent and Paul Waldman of The Washington Post wanted to quantify that when it came just to health care, so they asked the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Larry Levitt about the choice the saboteurs are trying to force: help seniors by expanding Medicare with dental, vision, and hearing treatment, or extend Medicaid coverage in the 12 Republican states that continue to refuse to do so under the Affordable Care Act. Levitt told them that 62 million seniors and disabled people on Medicare could benefit from expanded services. There are about 2.2 million people in 12 states stuck in the coverage gap—they make too little to qualify for subsidies on the ACA marketplace and too much to get traditional Medicaid. The majority of...

    Kiwanis cookbook While the Kiwanis Club of Los Gatos had to cancel its annual Fiesta de Artes fundraiser due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the club has found another creative way to raise money for its Turn-Around Scholarships and other programs. The Kiwanis have published “Family, Food and Fun: 2020 Guide to Good Food.” Along with recipes, the cookbook, which will be available virtually as well as in print, plugs the Los Gatos and Saratoga farmers’ markets, where it’s due to be on sale each week. Recipes include quiche Lorraine and exotic chicken salad, both of which were served at the Village House. Proceeds from events at the Village Lane restaurant supported EMQ Children & Family Services.

The Kiwanis have also rolled out their Care Package Program and are delivering goodies, crossword puzzles and current paperback books twice a week to seniors who are sheltering in place.

    DENVER (CBS4) – The YMCA of Metro Denver engages its senior members each week during the COVID-19 pandemic by creating virtual experiences that include formal classes and casual sessions for conversation. Members say it is an important part of their routine staying healthy and stimulated mentally and emotionally. “It was my home away from home, it was my second family, everyone was so welcoming,” Carolyn Bamford, a YMCA member said Wednesday. “Having that social connection between the people that are just near and dear to my heart and it’s meant the world to me and hopefully it has to them as well.” (credit: YMCA of Metro Denver) Bamford joined in 2014 after retiring as a teacher. She loved maintaining a fit lifestyle but enjoyed the new friends she made even more. Since the coronavirus outbreak, she has been more cautious than most staying home because her husband is compromised. So email interactions with friends and Zoom video conference calls have made up for the new restrictions. “I can’t even imagine what it would be like. I think about that a lot....
    What a school year this has been! As parents, we anticipate certain rites of passage for our children, one of which is their high school senior year. We envision them dressing for prom, loading buses for senior trips and approaching a stage to receive recognition for academic and athletic achievements. The big finale is their graduation day (Congratulations to the Class of 2020, June 26). This year things were different, but our seniors were celebrated in new and creative ways. With much fanfare, Beacon High School teachers and administrators visited each senior’s home to deliver a cap and gown. The Athletic Department orchestrated a tribute to senior athletes. Each senior had the chance to walk across the stage as their name was called and their families cheered. They received scholarships with a virtual presentation and picked up their yearbooks and diplomas. The icing on the cake was the chance for seniors to see themselves on the big screen at the Hyde Park Drive-In Theatre. They say it takes a village — and the Parent-Teacher-Student Organization can attest to that. Thank...
