Intervention and Prevention
In order to address the increasing rates of domestic violence among the elderly, the Department for the Aging in 2002 contracted for the first time with community based organizations to provide elder abuse prevention and intervention services at community centers throughout the five boroughs. The programs provide supportive counseling, training in financial protection, legal referrals, and violence prevention.
