Keep victims of elder abuse safe



Every year, it is estimated that one in ten older Americans are victims of physical, psychological, financial abuse and/or neglect. Although there are other domestic violence programs in place, they are ill-equipped to meet the special needs of the elderly. To meet this critical need, Cedar Village, a non-profit continuing care retirement community, is the first emergency elder abuse shelter in the state of Ohio. The shelter provides a place of safety and healing for victims 65 and older.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Every year, one in ten older Americans are victims of physical, sexual, psychological, financial abuse and/or neglect. As a continuing care retirement community, Cedar Village has the resources readily available to meet the special needs of those 65 and older as well as the ability to help break the cycle of abuse.

How will this project solve this problem?

By providing an elderly abuse victim an emergency place to stay, the abuse cycle can be broken and the victim will have an opportunity to restore their dignity and find a permanent living situation that is safe,

Potential Long Term Impact

In addition to giving individuals the chance to escape from abusive situations, Cedar Village aspires to initiate a vital culture change for our community making it no longer acceptable to "look the other way" when it comes to elder abuse.
