June 24 - Elder Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation

Elder abuse is not an easy problem to solve. It can present in many different ways – an older adult who is neglected by an adult child or caregiver; domestic violence by a partner, caregiver, or adult child/grandchild; sexual assault by a stranger, caregiver or family member; abuse or neglect by a partner with severe dementia; financial exploitation by a family member or professional; or systemic neglect by a long-term care provider under the pressure of staff turnover, insufficient staff training, or limited resources to support resident care. As a result, elder abuse requires responses that take many factors into consideration. This webinar training will highlight those factors and provide attendees with tools for improving response while navigating the delicate balance between autonomy and safety for the older adult.
