Protecting Elders Against Abuse

A smiling person with a red hat and a message advocating aging without fear of abuse and neglect.
We all deserve to live joyfully, boldly, abundantly, independently, fearlessly — free from the fear of abuse and neglect.

Part of our role as Area 4's Agency on Aging is to provide a better understanding of abuse and neglect of older adults and to educate each other on how to identify, address and prevent abuse – so we can all do our part to support everyone as we age.

We've compiled a library of resources to help aging adults and the people who love them learn more about elder abuse and, most importantly, how to spot and report it.
