Rural and Tribal Resources

Roughly 20 percent of older adults live in rural communities. When older adults need help, large rural landscapes can elongate response times.

Often there are fewer services and service providers and limited access to broadband. All of these are challenges to identifying and combating elder abuse, neglect and financial exploitation in rural and tribal communities.
