Providers of elder abuse shelters to meet in Ohio to share information on national problem

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, June 9, 2014 9:44 AM EDT

Pioneers in providing shelter for elderly abuse victims are working together to expand efforts to give seniors a refuge.

Eight such shelters have formed an alliance and meet this week in suburban Cincinnati to share best practices and hear from experts on elder abuse, which is increasingly recognized as a problem for the aging U.S. population. It's been estimated at least 2 million seniors are abused, exploited or neglected every year.

Joy Solomon helps lead the Weinberg Center for Elder Abuse Prevention, which opened in 2005 at the Hebrew Home in New York. She says giving senior victims a safe place to get emergency health, psychological and legal help within an established older adult community has worked well.

Shelter representatives will gather starting Tuesday at Cedar Village in Mason.
