Elder Abuse Prevention

The best way to intervene in the problem of elder abuse is to prevent it from happening. To this end, ACL commits resources to several important projects designed to meet the goals of coordinating federal elder justice efforts, exploring new prevention and intervention models, and providing up-to-date research and information to professionals and the public.

ACL also works to support state and local Adult Protective Services programs, coordinate federal elder justice efforts through the Elder Justice Coordinating Council, support the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program, and provide pension counseling.
