About Us

The Center for At Risk Elders (CARE) Inc., is a lawyer lead team of advocates guarding Indiana's neglected, abused, and exploited elders. The Volunteer Advocate Program is our flagship program.


Far too many adults and elders are unable to make quality decisions for themselves as a result of an incapacity, requiring guardian services. Yet a significant number have no family or friend who is appropriate to serve as guardian. This is where the Volunteer Advocates Program comes in. CARE matches Volunteer Advocates one-on-one with men and women in need of a guardian.


Guardianships allow trained, court-approved volunteers to provide oversight and advocacy for adults admitted to the hospital who have dementia, mental illness, developmental disability, chronic addiction or brain injury and no friend or relative to advocate on his or her behalf.


CARE’s focus is on providing civil remedies to redress, and protect against, elder abuse, neglect and exploitation.  CARE is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code and is funded through a combination of revenue streams including grants, donations, and fees paid by clients based upon their ability to pay.


In addition to program services, CARE serves as a resource to professionals and the general public on issues relating to the challenge of providing care to elders in crisis or in need of protection.
