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