California’s Master Plan For Aging: Prevent and End Elder Abuse in California

California has committed to developing a Master Plan for Aging in order to meet the needs of older adults today and for generations to come.

The fourth in this series of papers, Prevent and End Elder Abuse in California, offers specific policy recommendations, including improved data collection and sharing, increased cooperation among government entities, simpler advance planning, and establishing robust consumer protections—all of which work together to prevent elder abuse. We are grateful to partners at the California Elder Justice Coalition, with whom we worked to develop these recommendations.
