ALFA Older is Wiser Campaign

"It may be a family member, spouse or an adult child, [who] is most commonly [the culprit] and it is everyone’s responsibility to work together toward preventing elder abuse." 

~Karen Barno, ALFA President and CEO

The Assisted Living Federation Association (ALFA) recently launched a campaign to raise awareness for elder abuse.  Abuse can take many forms: financial, physical/sexual, or emotional.

We all have a fundamental right to age with dignity.  If you suspect that someone you know is a victim of abuse, you should contact the appropriate hotlines/agencies below:

Elder Abuse Helplines and Hotlines

Call 1-800-677-1116

Always dial 911 or local police during emergencies.
