Not Always Intentional: How to Avoid Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation in Long Term Care
REGISTRATION BEGINS 9 a.m.
Abuse, neglect and exploitation of older adults in both institutional settings and the home is a major problem. But not all perpetrators necessarily set out to harm an older person. Join us for this interactive program to identify who mistreats older adults and why; which older adults are most at risk; and how we can prevent elder mistreatment. Best practices for responding to abuse, neglect and exploitation situations will also be explored.
