Protecting the Elderly From Abuse
The Elder Justice Act has been years in the making. The Elder Justice Coalition and 18 other elder advocacy groups took 100 video testimonies to document the need to pass a law to protect the elderly from abuse. A video was created—An Age for Justice: Confronting Elder Abuse in America—and was sent to legislators during the passage of comprehensive healthcare reform. The Elder Justice Act (EJA or “the Act”) was enacted as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and signed into law March 23, 2010.
