Raising awareness about elder abuse among professionals and community members is a major step towards preventing abuse. The Center conducts outreach and education activities for older adults and their caregivers, professional training to teach senior service providers about signs and symptoms of abuse, reporting requirements, and available intervention resources.
The staff is happy to speak to any group about elder abuse – young and old, professional or community member. To inquire about an education session, please call (203) 396-1097.
The Center staff works closely with local partners, academic institutions, and leaders in the field of elder abuse detection and prevention to gather insights and data. This is imperative to help prevent future abuse and build a network of safe havens for older victims.
