Thank you for visiting the website of the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA). The NCEA is one of 27 Administration on Aging-funded Resource Centers. The NCEA is the place to turn to for up-to-date information regarding research, training, best practices, news and resources on elder abuse, neglect and exploitation. The Center provides information to policy makers, professionals in the elder justice field,and the public.

The Administration on Aging is proud to be a leader in the field of elder rights. Research shows that as many as two million elders are abused in the United States. As a government, as a society and as individuals, we must increase our efforts to insure that all older Americans age with dignity and honor. Whatever brings you to the NCEA site, we hope you find it helpful. We are always interested in feedback.
