I follow The National Center on Elder Abuse on Twitter

I follow 49 charities and organizations on Twitter to get a close-up view affecting the people and issues closest to me. The National Center on Elder Abuse is a great resource to learn the laws elders have and don’t have. Pressing issues like medical and housing concerns. 

The NCEA provides the latest information regarding research, training, best practices, news and resources on elder abuse, neglect and exploitation to professionals and the public. First established by the U.S. Administration on Aging (AoA) in 1988 as a national elder abuse resource center, the NCEA was granted a permanent home at AoA in the 1992 amendments made to Title II of the Older Americans Act.

The NCEA is one of 27 Administration on Aging-funded Resource Centers. Research shows that as many as two million elders are abused in the United States. The Administration on Aging recognizes that as a government, as a society and as individuals, we must increase our efforts to insure that all older adults age with dignity and honor.

The National Center on Elder Abuse is a program of the U.S. Administration on Aging, with grants awarded to the following agencies to carry out the Center’s activities:

Sub-grantees

The Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California is proud to be working with these sub-grantees to reach our primary audiences (seniors, caregivers, and the aging network) and to meet other important deliverables for the NCEA.
