Elder Access to Justice Roundtable

OVERVIEW

The Elder Access to Justice Roundtable was created to bring together diverse representatives of the community to raise awareness, prevent, identify and address elder abuse, neglect and exploitation by enhancing communication, identifying systemic problems, sponsoring training, and improving access to justice and services in Montgomery County.

The Roundtable meets monthly with a membership representing such wide-ranging groups as police, the County Sheriff, the District Attorney and Public Defender’s offices, healthcare and senior providers, legal advocates for seniors, hospitals, community advocates, judges from several Montgomery County judicial systems, the Recorder of Deeds, and members of the Offices of Senior Services, Public Health, Veterans Affairs and the Coroner’s Office. This broad array of professionals touch the lives of seniors in varied ways but come together to share information, expertise, and concern for the senior population of Montgomery County.

For more information about meetings and events, please contact Matthew Pio, Orphans' Court Administrator, at 610-278-3952 or mpio@montcopa.org
