Who We Are

The Clearinghouse on Abuse and Neglect of the Elderly (CANE) is located at the University of Delaware Center for Community Research and Service and contains over 6,000 entries of elder abuse literature.
The CANE database may be searched to obtain citations and brief summaries of peer-reviewed journal articles, as well as books, agency reports, hearing transcripts, videos, memoranda of understanding and online resources addressing the abuse and neglect, self-neglect and financial exploitation of elders.
Visit the website to view entries in the catalog.
