Elder abuse is a growing problem nationally, in the State of Ohio and in Cuyahoga County.
In 2014, it was estimated that more than 12,606 seniors were victims of abuse
, neglect or financial exploitation, in Cuyahoga County.
Unfortunately, only a small number of those cases were ever reported to Adult Protective Services (APS).
In the United States, only about 1 of every 5 cases of elder abuse, neglect or financial exploitation is reported to Adult Protective Services, annually.
Thank you for reporting your concerns about a frail and vulnerable aging or disabled Cuyahoga County resident. You are helping us to protect the health,
safety and well-being of thousands of area seniors and disabled adults!
