National Center on Elder Abuse

As a national authority, the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) is a provider of up-to-date, pertinent and valuable resources, education, and information on elder abuse and neglect. The NCEA disseminates information and provides technical assistance and training by: making news and resources available, collaborating on and disseminating research, identifying information about promising practices and interventions, operating a listserv, and providing subject matter expertise.
