All of us deserve to be treated with dignity, compassion and respect. But sometimes this isn’t the case and physical, emotional or financial abuse occurs. If you feel you’re a victim—or you know someone who is—the Area Agency on Aging of Pasco-Pinellas can help if you’re 60 or older.
The Agency will provide information, referrals, and counseling. Most importantly, if it comes to it, they will walk you through the judicial system. Criminal court orientation, accompaniment to court, assistance with the return of property, help with forms, and emergency legal advocacy are all available free of charge from this agency.
Being a victim of a crime can be upsetting and confusing. Call the AAAPP for free and professional advocacy, and a shoulder to lean on.
