Join us to learn more about The Red Flags of Elder Abuse, Neglect and Financial Exploitation

Speakers:

1 in 10 older adults will experience some form of abuse, neglect, or financial exploitation. Unfortunately, only one in 24 cases is ever reported.

This virtual training is designed for community members, neighbors, Villages members, and caregivers to better understand the issue of elder abuse.

Attendees will learn about how to spot the warning signs of elder abuse, especially now with social distancing guidelines in place.

Finally, attendees will learn how to respond effectively if they are concerned about an older or vulnerable adult in their life, including information on Adult Protective Services and other local community resources.
