Coordinated Response to Elder Abuse
Meritan is part of the Memphis Coordinated Community Response team that intervenes to protect older adults where there is a suspicion of physical, sexual or emotional abuse or suspicions of neglect, abandonment or financial exploitation, regardless of the setting or situation.
The Memphis area team is a collaboration of various agencies in the mid-south who assist with 24/7 advocacy home healthcare, emergency housing, group counseling and legal services to support those 60 and older to live safely and with dignity. We work in conjunction with local law enforcement, the district attorney's office and Tennessee Adult Protective Services.
