EAPCAllegan County Elder Abuse Prevention Coalition

The Allegan County Elder Abuse Prevention Coalition was created in December of 2010 as a result of a grant obtained from the National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse. The purpose of this coalition is twofold:

The coalition membership is comprised of professionals and private citizens of Allegan County who have an interest in protecting the county's senior population. Our membership includes staff from: Prosecutor's office, Sheriff Department, Adult Protective Services, Courts, the Department of Senior Services, Area Agency on Aging, home health agencies, churches, skilled nursing facilities; as well as concerned citizens acting as advocates for older adults.

If your organization is interested in hearing a presentation on elder abuse, please contact the Department of Senior Services at (269) 673-3333 or (877) 673-5333.

If you know of a vulnerable older adult who may be a potential victim of abuse or neglect, please help us help them.
