NCPEA - National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse
Elder Care


Welcome to NCPEA


The National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (NCPEA) is the national association for professionals, practitioners, and researchers across disciplines working to address abuse, neglect, and exploitation of elders and vulnerable adults. With members representing aging and social services, APS, healthcare, justice, domestic violence, and other arenas, NCPEA works to shape prevention and response by promoting research, education and awareness, multidisciplinary collaboration, advocacy, and public policy. It is a forum for dialogue and partnership.

NCPEA members are vital elder justice advocates. Together, we have the power to prevent elder abuse.
