Dementia sufferers eligible for free call blockers

Nuisance calls could soon become a thing of the past for Barking and Dagenham residents with dementia, thanks to the launch of a scheme offering free call blockers to victims of scam calls and unwanted intrusions.

Call blocking technology will help to ensure that dementia suffers are less vulnerable to scams, by screening inappropriate cold calls before they reach the householder.

Free call blockers are now available to any person living with dementia after funding was made available by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport.

Residents meeting this criteria can apply for a unit or find out more information about the scheme at: www.friendsagainstscams.org.uk/callblocker
