Elder Abuse Task Force
A collaboration of individuals from the Pike County Area Agency on Aging, the District Attorney’s office, and the medical and banking industries convened in late 2013 to establish the Pike County Elder Abuse Task Force.
The mission of the Task Force is to train professionals such as bank staff, aging agency representatives, medical, legal, clergy, and tax personnel to identify and report cases of potential exploitation, fraud, neglect and abuse of older adults. Education of the family, concerned citizens and the general public about elder abuse and how to recognize, prevent and report it is the ultimate purpose and goal of the Pike County Elder Abuse Task Force.
The Elder Abuse Task Force meets on the 3rd Monday of the month, at 10:00 a.m., at the Pike County Training Center unless otherwise noted. Meetings are open to the public.
