Protect Older Rhode Islanders - Pass Bill H-8031

Approximately 1 in 10 Americans aged 60+ have experienced some form of elder abuse.

Right now the Rhode Island House is considering a bill that would establish an Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation Task Force. This Task Force would study such areas as guardianship and power of attorney laws, civil and criminal penalties and adult protective services. Legislation would then be recommended to address problem areas so that older Rhode Islanders are protected from elder abuse and financial exploitation.

Urge the House Health, Education and Welfare Committee to support House Bill H-8031.
