Elder Abuse Task Force requests help

The Cobb Elder Abuse Task Force, in conjunction with Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta, are asking for help in identifying and reporting any substandard personal care homes

A typical personal care home is a licensed, private residence providing assistance for two or more elderly or disabled adults with essential daily activities, such as bathing, eating and dressing. Elderly residents are considered anyone not related to the owner by blood or marriage.

Due to the rise in the rate of neglectful personal care homes, the Cobb Elder Abuse Task Force is asking for the public to report any home that does not meet the requirements listed above, as well as homes suspected of neglect, abuse, unsanitary conditions or any otherwise harmful situation for the elderly residents.

Anonymous tips can be submitted to the Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta Hotline, (404)577-TIPS. More information on the Cobb Elder Abuse Task Force can be found at
