Elder Abuse Resources

Senior Citizens are especially vulnerable to domestic violence, because as we age our support system of family and friends tends to grow smaller.

Often the intervention of a family member or friend is the deciding factor that stops the abuse. Below are a list of sites that provide fact sheets on how to spot abuse, resources on where to get help and support for victims.
