The Aging Network

  • Jeanine Yonashiro-Cho

The Aging Network is an extensive and diverse nationwide system of government-funded providers serving older adults in their local communities. Despite the important role that the Aging Network can play in supporting victims of elder abuse and in potentially helping older adults avoid victimization, collaboration between protective services and aging services does not routinely occur in many communities. To examine the role of the Aging Network and the ways in which its diverse services can address the needs of abused, neglected, and at-risk older adults, this chapter begins with a discussion of the background and history of both the Aging Network services and protective service programs. We compare and contrast the approaches and services offered by each and discuss ways in which they can effectively work together to prevent abuse, address it when it occurs, and reduce the likelihood that victims will suffer from recurring maltreatment.
