Eras Development director Heather Uzowulu presented their available programing, including volunteer opportunities. She also shared best practices on preventing senior fraud and scams.

Eras Senior Network is a community-centered nonprofit organization serving Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties. Their mission is to engage and support seniors, adults with disabilities, and family caregivers in leading meaningful lives.

The “free of cost” programs are provided through partnering with government programs, non-profits, educational groups, corporations, and congregations.

Eras relies on their volunteers for program delivery and success. There are many opportunities for volunteering. If you are interested, visit and take a brief survey to see which programs best fits you with your availability.

Volunteer driven programs focus on:

· Reducing isolation for seniors

· Maintaining independence through the Faith in Action services

· Mobilizing volunteers to make important contributions to the community's needs

· Transportation to medical appointments, the grocery store and food pantries

· Medical support

· Client assessment

· Friendly phone calls

· Minor home repair, lawn mowing and snow removal

· Friendly visit

· Stop Senior Fraud Program - presented by volunteers to requesting organizations

  • In 2022, Waukesha County seniors lost over 4million dollars to fraud and scams. Currently romance scams represent a large percentage of these financial abuses, targeting our seniors.

The “Stop Senior Fraud Program” addresses a number of scams focusing on seniors, i.e. grandparents, telemarketing, funerals, sweepstakes, online/email, medical/Medicare, investments, power of attorney, and charities scams.

Several videos regarding fraud and scams are posted on the Eras website. A resource contact list for victims or those looking for preventative measures against frauds and scams will be provided on the Elmbrook Rotary Newsletter in the near future.
