Elder Abuse Initiative

The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office wants you to be aware of the warning signs of elder abuse and financial exploitation. We also want you to know that you are not alone. There are a number of community resources available to assist you  regardless of whether you are living in your home, assisted living or institutional setting. No one deserves to be the victim of physical, mental or financial abuse! We are here to assist you with any problems you may encounter. The earlier you seek help, the easier it may be to correct or address your situation.
