SAFE: Stop Abuse of Elders
The five types of elder abuse are physical, sexual, psychological, financial, and neglect. Less than one in fourteen cases of elder abuse is reported to law enforcement.
ASK YOURSELF …
• Is someone treating your body in a way that makes you uncomfortable?
• Do you feel like you are losing control of your money?
• Are you afraid of anyone in your life?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, call 410-234-0030. It is OK to tell. You have a voice and people will listen.
SAFE: Stop Abuse of Elders, shows that the Jewish community cares about elders. In collaboration with Jewish Community Services and Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, CHANA seeks to prevent the incidence and lessen the consequences of elder abuse. SAFE also offers supportive services for individuals, families and concerned members of the community. We work with elders, family members and friends of older adults who are concerned about their safety and well-being.
