The Center for Elder Justice & Advocacy works to build a stronger social structure around older adults, so we can reduce isolation and stop abuse and neglect before they start. We all want to age in place with dignity, respect, and independence.
In our society, older people, for example, are often isolated and alone, which increases the likelihood of neglect and abuse. We can create a more just society for all people—regardless of our age—by building a stronger social structure. Elder abuse is a serious health pandemic that we all should care about and eliminate in Alabama.
The Center for Elder Justice & Advocacy is here to support family caregivers so you can carry on your incredible caregiving journey to better support your loved one. You are not alone, and we are here to provide you with support, tools, and resources.
