Elder abuse and neglect is one of the last forms of family exploitation to receive widespread attention, yet nearly one in 10 Americans older than age 60 have experienced some form of abuse. This crime robs our most vulnerable populations of their dignity, security and in some cases, their lives. This presentation will define the various types of abuse and neglect, discuss examples of abuse in the older adult population, and share techniques used to investigate abuse cases.
Participants in this webinar will be able to:
- Define abuse and neglect.
- Identify and describe the three types of elder abuse and neglect.
- Identify the signs and symptoms of possible elder abuse and neglect.
- Describe the steps taken when elder abuse or neglect is suspected.
