Prevent Elder Abuse and Neglect: Increase Funding for the Office of Health Facilities Complaints
A well-funded Office of Health Facilities Complaints is necessary to prevent elder abuse from happening. Please fully fund the OHFC to the level proposed under the Governor's budget. Stand up for Minnesota's most vulnerable older adults.
By taking action you will join AARP's online network and will receive urgent news and action alerts about the issues that matter the most to older Americans, as well as information about AARP activities, events, and member benefits.
Dear [Decision Maker],
Thank you for partially funding the Office of Health Facility Complaints (OHFC). Recent news coverage highlights horrific stories from families whose loved ones were harmed at senior living, home care, and long-term care facilities. As result, too many older adults suffered amputation of limbs, bruising, abrasions, physical and sexual abuse, and even death. This is alarming and should not be happening.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
