Oklahoma Releases “AbuseIsNotOK” Campaign to Prevent Elder Abuse

Oklahoma Human Services released a new online portal, AbuseIsNotOK.org, to make it easier for individuals to “report allegations of abuse, neglect and exploitation of vulnerable adults . . .” The website will also provide educational tools to prevent elder abuse, including warning signs and local resources.

The goal of the campaign is to protect senior citizens, who the Adult Protective Services claims to be “among our most vulnerable.” The Attorney General for Oklahoma explained that the “resources aim to help Oklahomans properly identify the signs of elder abuse and neglect and what to do if they suspect an issue.” This portal partners with a preexisting hotline that also accepts suspicions of elder abuse.
