One in ten older adults have experienced some form of elder abuse.
It can be physical, sexual, emotional, financial, abandonment or self-neglect.
Join older adults, caregivers and professionals – including law enforcement, clinicians, social workers, EMTs, nurses and firefighters – to learn:
• Who’s at risk.
• What older adults can do to stay in charge and advocate for themselves and others.
• What we all can do to prevent elder abuse!
