Task Force on Aging plans countywide blitz

August 23, 2012

The Ottawa County Task Force on Aging is planning a countywide blitz to distribute their newly developed Senior Abuse Protocol cards. The blitz is planned for Wednesday, Aug. 29, and involves members of the Task Force visiting local businesses, agencies and institutions that interact with the senior population.

The distribution of these business-card protocols is an effort to increase awareness of and provide direction if someone suspects abuse, neglect, or exploitation of someone in our community over the age of 60.

The Ottawa County Task Force on Aging recommends the following Senior Abuse Protocol:

For those in immediate danger, call 911.
•For those with important questions or concerns call Adult Protective Services, 419-898-3688 and dial 0.
•For those inquiring non-emergency aid or services, call United Way, 211.
