About this Conference
“To understand, prevent, identify or respond to elder abuse, neglect, or
exploitation, we need…” This phrase and the responses of 750 stakeholders
served as the foundation for the Elder Justice Roadmap released in July 2014.
Elder Abuse, neglect, and exploitation may be described not only nationally
but in Ohio as a silent pandemic. Even though mandatory, reporting the
mistreatment of older adults, including self-neglect, remains largely under
reported and inconsistent in Ohio. Using the Elder Justice Road Map as a
platform and planning resource, this Conference will explore what practices
Ohio needs to better respond to the growing epidemic of elder abuse.
