Prevent the Abuse of At-Risk Adults and Elders
The El Paso County Pikes Peak Elder Abuse Coalition was created to empower and educate our community, older adults and caregivers. Our main functions are to provide information on services, policies and trainings for preventing mistreatment of elders. Mistreatment of elders appears in many different forms, including physical abuse, emotional abuse, undue influence, sexual abuse or exploitation, financial exploitation, denial of critical care and self-neglect. Meetings are typically held at 8 a.m. on the third Friday of each month at Silver Key Senior Services, located at 1625 S. Murray Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO 80916. For more information, email PPEAC05@gmail.com or call Silver Key Senior Services at (719) 884-2348.
PPEAC works closely with other entities in the region. One particular area touched is guardianships and conservatorships, along with volunteer advocates. Read more here.
