Welcome to the Community Committee on Elder Abuse

Our goal is to increase public awareness of senior abuse and help families, health practitioners, caregivers and the public to identify and prevent abuse and neglect within the senior population. Education, sensitivity and empowerment are the cornerstones of our philosophy with the intent of lessening seniors’ vulnerability to potential abuse.
