Uniting for Elder Justice

Older adults face a myriad of issues in daily life. Often times these issues are compounded by cognitive issues or physical disability. Older adults are statistically more vulnerable to abuse and exploitation than their younger counterparts. Join us to learn about these unique threats facing older adults, learn about how to help them mitigate these threats and join us in our mission to “Unite for Elder Justice”.
