National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life

Seventy-seven million baby boomers are aging and people 85 and older, the fastest growing segment of the population, are disproportionately women. These demographic trends have significant implications for victimization, safety, suffering, health, and well-being of tens of millions of older Americans.

Through advocacy and education, the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL) works everyday to improve victim safety, increase abuser accountability, expand coordinated community response, and ultimately, put an end to abuse in later life.

As a private, non-profit organization, NCALL relies on federal funding and the generosity of others to carry out our work. To pledge your support to NCALL, please visit the Donation page today.

 

 

NEW Technology and Abuse in Later LIfe Toolkit now available!

NCALL is pleased to announce a Technology Safety toolkit for older adults. These new materials were created in conjunction with National Stalking Awareness Month with help from Disability Rights WisconsinEnd Domestic Abuse Wisconsin and the Safety Net Project of the National Network to End Domestic Violence. The toolkit has two main goals: to provide information about common technologies, including assistive technology, and to identify ways older adults can safeguard themselves from those who misuse technology to control, harass, stalk, and/or threaten them.
