(Only Washington County Residents 50 and over)
Seventy-seven million baby boomers are aging and individuals 50 and over have become the fastest growing segment of the United States population today. The predominant portion of individuals that experience elder abuse are female but males also experience elder abuse. Elder abuse is widespread through all racial, ethnic, socio-economic and religious backgrounds.
The Arkansas Coordinated Response to Elder Abuse Training Effort (CREATE), was created by grant funding provided by the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Violence Against Women to combat the growing problem of elder abuse. Older individuals 50 and over make up 25 percent of the population in Washington County compared to approximately 5 percent of the total population state wide. Due to the large population of individuals over 50 in Washington County and the growing problem of elder abuse, your response in this survey will help provide training and services to combat the growing problem of elder abuse.
