About MCQC

In every community across this country vulnerable older adults are being abused, neglected, and exploited. Yet in many instances their plight is ignored or minimized. Society tends to view older persons as burdens rather than as valued individuals who are entitled to be treated with dignity and respect.

Many incidents of abuse go unreported because older persons are embarrassed, ashamed, or fearful of losing the help they need from family members or caregivers to remain in their homes. As the number of older adults in our population increases, the incidence of elder abuse will almost certainly increase. We can take action to address this issue

Founded in 1987, MCQC has grown to a membership of over 700. The majority of our members are Missourians but many from other States have joined MCQC because of their interest and concern in improving quality of care and quality of life for nursing home residents and recipients of in-home health care services.

If you are interested in helping MCQC reach more people and further our mission, consider becoming a member or donating!
