Support ALFA's campaign to end elder abuse
"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:
