February 21, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Between one and two million Americans, aged 65 and over, have been injured, exploited, or otherwise mistreated by someone on whom they depend for care or protection.  With the aging population exploding over the next 10 years, enhanced awareness and knowledge of elder abuse can help destigmatize it, encouraging observation, reporting, intervention, and prevention of future incidents.


Participations of this presentation will be able to:

1. Define elder abuse
2. Identify signs of elder abuse
3. Explore the risk factors for elder abuse
4. Identify strategies for preventing elder abuse
5. Examine treatment barriers
6. Identify tools and resources
