Elder Abuser Registry Proposed

Advocates hope to strengthen laws against adult abuse and neglect and financial exploitation in the 2011 legislative session.  A key issue for many advocates this year is creation of a state registry of people found to have abused or neglected adults — similar to the one the state already maintains for child abusers. Bills have been filed in both the House and Senate to do so.

Advocates say they will work to advance Senate Bill 38, sponsored by Sen. Julie Denton, R-Louisville, and House Bill 101, filed by Rep. Ruth Ann Palumbo, D-Lexington, despite concerns from state officials about potential costs.
 
Among the supporters is the Council on Developmental Disabilities, which believes a registry would help protect disabled or elderly adults by giving potential employers a place to check the backgrounds of people they hire to provide personal care at home such as housekeeping or bathing and grooming.
