National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) provides the latest information and resources on research, training, policy, and best practices on preventing and responding to elder mistreatment.
1 in 10 adults aged 60+ in the U.S. experienced some form of abuse in the prior year.
The NCEA was established by the U.S. Administration on Aging (AoA) in 1988 and granted a permanent home at AoA in the 1992 amendments made to Title II of the Older Americans Act. The NCEA is one of 27 AoA-funded Resource Centers. The AoA recognizes that as a government, as a society and as individuals, we must increase our efforts to ensure that all older adults age with dignity and honor.
