About C.A.A.N.E.

The formation of C.A.A.N.E. was made possible through a $10,000 grant from the National Center on Elder Abuse. Montgomery County’s Adult Protective Services was only one of 12 grant recipients nationwide.

VISION

Montgomery County is a community where older and vulnerable adults live free from abuse, neglect, and exploitation, and are empowered, respected, valued and supported.

MISSION

To develop collaborative partnerships to prevent and eliminate elder abuse, neglect and exploitation of older and vulnerable adults through comprehensive and effective education, advocacy, intervention and services.

C.A.A.N.E. Senior News 2021

The past year has put CAANE’s Annual Elder Abuse Awareness Day celebrations on hold. The CAANE education committee looked for creative ways to educate seniors on abuse, neglect and exploitation and get resources in senior’s hands during these uncertain times.  With funds still available from the sponsors of last years canceled event, the committee was able to create a Senior News guide that will be printed and available by Elder Abuse Awareness Day-6/15. There will be 4000 copies for distribution in the community. The guide features articles about safety, mental health, community resources and more. More details will follow on how to pick up a copy of the resource once they are delivered. A digital copy of the piece is available at the link below.
