4th Annual Cuyahoga County Elder Abuse
 Awareness Community Forum 

Registration Form

Cuyahoga County Division of Senior and Adult Services is proud to host the 4th Annual Cuyahoga County Elder Abuse Awareness Community Forum to increase awareness about the needs of Cuyahoga County seniors who are abused, neglected and exploited, annually, and advocate for elder justice. Every year an estimated 5 million, or 1 in 10, older Americans are victims of elder abuse, neglect or exploitation. As part of the 2016 Elder Abuse Community Forum, concerned citizens, advocates and aging professionals will learn more about ways to identify vulnerable seniors, what services are available to protect the safety and well-being of older adults and more about how we can all come together to end elder abuse. The Keynote Speaker is Paul Greenwood the Deputy District Attorney for the Office of the San Diego District Attorney's Office.

"Senior Center Knowledge Forum a Success"


On May 17, 2016 at Crowne Plaza - Independence, the Division of Senior and Adult Services (DSAS) hosted the "Senior Center Knowledge Forum: Best Practices and New Models of Service", which raised awareness on the importance of senior centers in the continuum of care. Also, at the forum, DSAS announced winners of the four $25,000 Senior Center Innovation Grants. "The launch of the Senior Center Innovation Fund heralds a new era as the Division of Senior and Adult Services creates a path for senior centers to adopt new models that are responsive to the changing needs of senior living in Cuyahoga County", said Division of Senior and Adult Services Administrator, Dr. Richard Jones. Earlier this year, Cuyahoga County released an RFP soliciting proposals from senior center collaboratives comprised of non-profit and/or municipal senior centers, to develop innovative service models for the delivery of senior center services. These four winning collaboratives will compete for two (2) additional grants of $50,000 each, which will be used to help implement their innovative design. The Cuyahoga County Division of Senior and Adult Services will continue to monitor and provide oversight to this process. More information about the winners will be posted soon.
