ELDER ABUSE IN OHIO

 

In 2020, OCAPS fielded 1,602 calls for help and assisted 4,015 additional persons at 71 events.  This represents a mere fraction of the number of older Ohioans who experienced abuse, neglect and exploitation.  With the help of OCAPS’ many partners, we will continue to raise awareness, improve response and protections, while supporting the dignity of those involved.
