Elder abuse information

At St. Michael's, we care about our patients’ health and well-being. Unfortunately, seniors may find themselves the victims of neglect, financial, physical, emotional or sexual abuse.

If you are a senior and are being abused or feel unsafe, please speak to your health care provider or try some of these helpful community resources. If you need help in an emergency, call 911.
