Elder Abuse Education Close to Altoona

Many Pennsylvanians are working together to educate the community on the frequency and types of elder abuse that many aging citizens face in our state.  Last month, the Pennsylvania Department of Aging set up a community seminar to address some of these issues in Johnstown.  Over 400 people registered for the event, making it one of the largest elder abuse seminars that state officials have seen to date.  Other similar seminars are held frequently around the state.  For more information and to read the
