Elder Protection

Care and Protection of Our Seniors

We offer a wide range of safety, health, and wellness programs for seniors across Middlesex County. Senior citizens deserve to be treated with dignity and respect; however, far too often they find themselves the victims of abuse, neglect, and exploitation, many times at the hands of a family member or caretaker.

Seniors may also be vulnerable to deceptive business practices from legitimate or purported contractors, tradesmen, or other service providers; and they often fall victim to extortion.

Through education and prevention programs, the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office works to ensure that seniors are safe in their homes, and that the epoch of their lives is marked by happiness, tranquility, and security.
