Program Description


"Elder abuse can be an underlying concern for cases heard in any division of the court (e.g., traffic, domestic violence, probate, family, and criminal). An elderly victim of abuse may not always be the alleged victim in a case; he or she could appear in court as a defendant or respondent, a plaintiff or petitioner, a witness, or a juror.

"The following red flags can help judges, court staff, attorneys and others identify persons who may be experiencing elder abuse and neglect...signs of Physical or Sexual Abuse, Financial Abuse, Psychological Abuse, and Neglect."

“Working together we can take elder abuse out of the shadows and provide justice to older victims.”
