The Ottawa County Task Force on Aging was formed to address issues facing Ottawa County Senior Citizens, as well as raise awareness of the problem of Elder Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation. This collaborative works to solve problems and find practical ways to improve the quality of life for seniors in our community. A protocol has been developed by the team to address problems once they are identified.

It is the responsibility of all citizens of Ottawa County to recognize and report Elder Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation!

Contact any team member to join our team or to share any concerns you may have about an elderly person in our community.

Anyone can make a referral. All cases are confidential.
