Program Description

"Currently, it is estimated that approximately two million older adults, representing five percent of Americans age 65 and older, are subject to abuse and neglect each year at the hands of the very people they depend on for care. As our society ages, it is expected that these numbers will increase, unless a stand is taken against this terrible epidemic of abuse against older adults. The time has come for every agency, organization, and foundation to pay attention to this critical issue."
