Elder Abuse Assistance
Elder abuse goes largely undetected because the victims are often afraid to report their abuse. But the growing numbers of assault, neglect, financial exploitation and economic fraud tell us that elder abuse is on the rise.
HRA’s Victim Advocates, Elderly, Financial and Community Case Management professionals have teamed up to help older victims navigate legal and financial systems and provide case management referrals so they can maintain their independence and self-sufficiency.
