JUNE 6, 2022. In honor of Elder Abuse Awareness Day, June 15th, Livingston County Catholic Charities and the Elder Justice Coalition will host The Many Faces of Elder Abuse Seminar. In partnership with various community members and entities, Livingston County Catholic Charities will bring Elder Abuse Awareness to light through education, networking, and sharing. The event will feature experts and key speakers including, the Prosecuting Attorney’s Association of Michigan, South Central Legal Services, the Livingston County Hoarding Task Force, LCCC’s Prevention of Elder Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation (PEANE) team, Attorney General Dana Nessel and more.
The senior programs at Livingston County Catholic Charities have seen a tremendous uptick in seniors being abused, neglected or exploited. This led to the creation of the Livingston County Catholic Charities Prevention of Elder Abuse Neglect and Exploitation (P.E.A.N.E.) program in 2017. The Elder Abuse Coalition includes staff from LCCC, the Livingston County Prosecutor’s Office, the Livingston County Sheriff’s Dept., Adult Protective Services/DHHS, the Ombudsmen/AAA1-B, PAAM, the Fowlerville Police, Foguth Financial and the Crime Victims Legal Assistance Project.
As Americans, we believe in justice for all. Yet we fail to live up to this promise when we allow older members of our society to be abused or neglected. Join Livingston County Catholic Charities and the Elder Justice Coalition to learn more about how you can help prevent and address Elder Abuse in the future.
