Elder Abuse

As we, or our loved ones, get older, we need to depend on others to care for us. If you are concerned that an elderly person is being abused, report this immediately.

Our elderly are more susceptible to financial fraud than others. Elder financial abuse is on the rise. Contact our office if you need help with elder abuse.
