Our team, made up of healthcare professionals and advocacy communicators, was disgusted by this growing trend. Our purpose is to create the top online resource for exposing senior abuse.

There are many senior abuse websites affiliated with law firms, unfortunately. We are not affiliated with any law firm or lawyer, nor do we refer our visitors to legal firms. We will also not link to law firms.
