Elder Abuse Awareness

AgeWell Services receives a grant from Senior Resources to provide education services in Oceana, Muskegon and Ottawa counties. The services are provided by members of the Tri-County Protection team.

The mission of this group is to effectively work together to identify, advocate, and seek justice for adult victims of abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation.

As community partners we will further work to educate law enforcement, health care providers, financial institutions, older adults and the general population regarding elder abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation.

Report abuse:

If you suspect elder abuse, neglect or exploitation, call 1-855-444-3911 or locally call Adult Protective Services.

Oceana County: (231) 873-2106
Muskegon County: (231) 733-3612
Ottawa County: (616) 394-7220

If you suspect someone is in immediate danger, call 9-1-1.
