AWARE Inc, a human services organization aiding abuse victims, has recently been awarded a three-year Elder Victim Advocacy grant. This new grant will help to form services for community members, aged 60 or above, who are living independently but may be the victims of physical, sexual, mental, and financial abuse. The Organization will offer counseling services to the elderly, and will also speak at senior centers. Two detectives will also be working on the team in the case that an incident of elder abuse does need to be investigated.
Attorney Doug Stoehr deals with elder abuse in both nursing homes and hospitals. If you suspect that your loved one has been mistreated or neglected by caregivers in a hospital or a nursing home, please contact our law office for a consultation to discuss possible action on your claim.
