We support research, education, direct service, and policy work with the goal of preventing, detecting, intervening, and ultimately eradicating elder abuse.

Elder Abuse Takes Many Terrible Forms


Physical abuse, neglect, financial abuse, psychological abuse, sexual abuse, and nursing home abuse.

We Address Elder Abuse Through Four Program Areas


Research, direct services, education, and policy & advocacy. More information about each of these methods is available below.

Research

We support ground breaking research that seeks to prevent, detect, and treat elder abuse that occurs in community or nursing home settings.

Direct Services

We have created innovative programs for communities, hospitals, and nursing homes to serve elder abuse victims and the people who care about them, and we provide technical support to communities who want to replicate them.
