WHY SENIORS ARE MOST VULNERABLE
To Dishonest Home Contractors In 2020
Foremost, it is not the intent of this home guide to portray senior private home heads as helpless, incapable of making prudent decisions, or naive by virtue of age. Seniors who live independently in their own homes are among a group of private home decision makers most subject to dishonest individuals in the construction trades. These others include:
1. First-time private home heads.
2. Single parents, especially moms.
3. Single women.
4. Those who are disabled, irrespective of nature of disability.
Seniors Regarded Easiest Prey
Nonetheless, our focus is on the phenomenon of senior vulnerability. Dishonest contract firms or individual contractors are more prone to target seniors because they are stereotyped as ‘easiest prey.’ Seniors remain stigmatized as feeble-minded, living off retirement benefits, and the least likely to file official complaints. For the latter, the government makes the complaint process difficult to follow through since they require knowing personal facts about them. In addition, this personal information becomes public record – for all to see. No doubt, a form of legalized privacy violation for which complainants are synonymously warned about yet compelled to allow – in writing.
Subsequently most people, who are victimized by dishonest individuals in the building trades do not file official complaints, the incidents are even greater among seniors who would rather be left alone. Additionally, although many seniors in our day are active and regularly up and about, there remain a segment who are not. These among us are most apt to be easiest prey.
