Elder Abuse

What is Elder Abuse?

Elder abuse is an intentional act, or failure to act, by a caregiver or another person in a relationship involving an expectation of trust that causes or creates a risk of harm to an older adult over the age of 60.

We have experienced staff that understand the problems some elders face when they are being mistreated by people they care about. We will listen and provide you with the resources and assistance you need.
