The Ohio Attorney General’s Elder Abuse Commission will commemorate the 2021 Ohio Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 28, 2021.  The purpose of this day is to promote effective collaboration to prevent and protect older adults from maltreatment including abuse neglect. The webinar will showcase innovations by state and local experts highlighting their efforts to address the unique needs of serving and protecting older adults during the pandemic. We will focus on changes in service delivery, the importance of professional self-care, and lessons learned that may continue post-pandemic. At this event we will review 2021 mid-way, to consider what we have done, where we are going, and if we are making a difference in the lives of older adults and victims of elder abuse. We believe the creativity and energy of Ohio Elder Abuse Awareness Day activities has positively impacted the increase awareness of elder mistreatment across Ohio. We are encouraged with Ohio’s continuous progress; however, our work unfortunately remains unfinished. At this event the information shared will strengthen our efforts to make Ohio a safe place for everyone.

The event features panel experts representing the following:

  • Grove City Police Department
  • Ohio Attorney General's Office – Health Care Fraud Unit
  • Ohio Department of Insurance
  • Ohio Geriatrics Society
  • Ohio Job and Family Director’s Association
  • Ohio Victim Witness Association
