Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden joined Bayhealth’s STEPS to Health Aging monthly lecture series last night, where he spoke candidly about ways to combat the financial fraud, neglect, and physical abuse that often impact Delaware residents over 65. Emphasizing vigilance and collaboration, Biden implored the audience to call his office to report suspicious or fraudulent behavior.
“Together, we can fight these crimes, but I need you to help me. Call me, call my office with information. We want to hear from you,” Biden said. Biden’s Chief of Staff, Timothy P. Mullaney, handed out business cards with contact information.
Throughout the hour-long event, Biden took questions from the audience and spoke personally with attendees about their experiences. Concerns raised by the group included home care services; identity theft; internet privacy; and child custody laws.
Attorney General Biden will return to Bayhealth at the next STEPS event, to be held at 12:30 pm, February 19, 2013, at Milford Senior Center.
