TNDAGC has partnered with the Tennessee Department of Human Services and Tennessee Voices for Victims to encourage Tennesseans to talk about elder abuse.
Tennessee state law requires reporting of suspected abuse of a vulnerable or elderly adult, but many Tennesseans are embarrassed to talk about this sensitive subject.
Tips to help get Tennessee talking about elder abuse:
- Share the videos and graphics below with your family and friends.
