Our case manager assists seniors with obtaining restraining orders, accompanies them to court, and helps get them whatever additional assistance they need while working closely with the police, the Bronx District Attorney’s office, and Adult Protective Services.

The case manager is also part of a Multi-Discipline Task force which offers an array of supportive services to victims of crime.

Community Impact

In 2021, BronxWorks provided 45 older adults with elder abuse case management.
