Door County agencies work together to stop elder abuse

Door County law enforcement, human services and community groups are joining forces to deal with instances of elder abuse.  Door County is one of four project sites in Wisconsin that are part of the federal "Abuse in Later Life" grant program.  Anni Lampert, with Help of Door County, was among several representatives from the county who attended a training conference in Washington D.C.   Lampert says the training sessions were designed to help recognize and respond to potential abuse cases.

 


Door County was selected because of the high number of older residents who live here full-time.  Lampert says the percentage of older residents is expected to make up over 50-percent of Door County's population next year.
