What We Do to End Elder Abuse
What We Do to End Elder Abuse—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
This includes the physical abuse of elders, neglect or elders, financial abuse of elders, psychological abuse of elders, sexual abuse of elders, 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.
What We Do: Research
We actively support ground breaking research in the field of elder abuse that seeks to prevent, detect, and treat the abuse that occurs in community or nursing home settings.
What We Do: 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.
