What does the council do?

The mission of the Bluegrass Elder Abuse Prevention Council is to aid in the prevention of elder abuse through community education and identifying those at risk.

How does the council work?

The Bluegrass Elder Abuse Prevention Council aids in the prevention of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation through community education, and inter-agency collaboration. It is our duty to educate individuals in our community and to prevent elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation in Fayette and Jessamine Counties.

The Council is made up of more than 20 advocates who work in the senior services industry, as well as, other concerned citizens. There is room for more people like these on the council.

Can I get involved?

The council is open to the general public, and extends a warm invitation to anyone that would like to participate.
