Elder Abuse Related Services:
For a number of years SASSMM had a well established 'Abuse in Later Life' advocacy and response program that provided one to one support, various support groups, and extensive outreach to individuals who may have been abused 50 years ago or today. Due to changes in funding SASSMM no longer has dedicated funds to work specifically with outreach services to older adults, however, SASSMM does still provide support services, accompaniments, education, and advocacy for all clients, including the older adults in our communities. All services are free and confidential. We are mandated reporters.
