National Center on Elder Abuse

Legal and medical vulnerabilities, due to lack of supports and services in our communities, can be both risk factors and repercussions of abuse.

Elder abuse cases are often very complex and require a complex response; yet no one agency can address all the needs.

Here's a model that works: The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Center for Elder Justice at The Hebrew Home at Riverdale offers emergency shelter services and holistic service approaches to elder abuse, helping older people recover well-being, access justice, and improve physical, emotional, financial, and legal security.

Everyone has a right to safety and justice. However, it is estimated that millions of older adults, from all walks of life, encounter harmful scams every year. Yesterday was the first ever National Senior Fraud Awareness Day designated by the U.S. Senate to raise awareness about scams, encourage implementation of policies to prevent these scams from happening, and protect our communities from scams.

Here are things we can do to help protect our communities from scams: bit.ly/2L6i7RR
