Keep victims of elder abuse safe

Jun 19, 2012

Elder abuse awareness symposium

As the only elder abuse shelter in the Midwest, Cedar Village continues to spearhead the initiative to raise awareness about the prevalence of elder abuse and the need to keep victims safe from harm. On June 14, more than 100 people attended the Cedar Village symposium on Elder Abuse entitled from the Sounds of Silence to the Sanctity of Shelter. The audience of professionals, including social workers, law enforcement, county and private agencies, healthcare professionals and more, listened to the Director of the Ohio Department of Aging, Bonnie Kantor-Burman discuss the issue of elder abuse. Her presentation was followed by a panel presentation featuring experts from law enforcement, banking, pharmacy, the ombudsman's office, social services and our shelter.   

The Shalom Center for Elder Abuse Prevention opened at Cedar Village in January 2012.  To date, we have had numerous referrals and two admissions.   

Thank you for your support.  Your help is making a difference one person at a time.
