MEAPA® - Maricopa Elder Abuse Prevention Alliance

 

MEAPA LogoMEAPA® promotes public awareness, education, and community outreach for the prevention of Elder Abuse and Late-Life Domestic Violence.

People who abuse and exploit the elderly do not discriminate. Their abuse affects people in every segment of society, all ethnic and social backgrounds, and both men and women. An elder abuse victim may be your neighbor, friend or family member. It is estimated that only one in every 10 cases of elder abuse is reported.
