Objective:
To discuss the issue of violence and elder abuse, drawing attention to the role of the Open Universities of the Third Age and the network of services for coping with violence and ill-treatment against the elderly, to avoid a fragmented and resolution to their demands.

Methodology:
A bibliographical survey with retrospective, descriptive and documentary research.

Results:
The Statute of the Elderly states that in Brazil, no elderly person will suffer any kind of negligence, discrimination, violence, cruelty or oppression. It is necessary to identify each case, forward it to the right person, and, above all, to follow up the negotiations so that their outcome is as fast and as effective as possible, and the elderly have, if not their fundamental rights fully protected, at least their demands duly treated and with valid responses. It is also necessary to empower and empower the elderly on the subject.

Conclusion:
The article suggests the creation of institutional mechanisms that favor the coordination of the work developed by each of the entities that make up the network to fight against violence. This strategy facilitates the most efficient communication and intersectoral articulation among its actors; it also enables quick access to the main network recipient who is the elderly person in a situation of violence. It also suggests that UnATI is more active in promoting scientific research that addresses this issue and responds to the demands of the aging and civil society on this issue, especially those that result in information, awareness, and empowerment of the elderly in the face of this perverse phenomenon.
