Objectives:

1) Review definitions and statistics to better understand impacts of abuse and maltreatment on old adults
2) Recognize the common dynamics of abuse in later life
3) Identify unique barriers that may exist for older adults seeking assistance

The Minnesota Elder Justice Center mission is to mobilize communities to prevent and alleviate elder abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation of elders and vulnerable adults. Our presentation will help attendees recognize the signs and symptoms of abuse, how to report suspected abuse, and discuss measures we can take to prevent abuse and financial exploitation.
