Signs of Elder Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific) | HOST: National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER)

Lawyers and others who work with older adults should be aware of potential signs of abuse, neglect, and exploitation. This awareness requires an understanding of abuse signs, as well as the questions to ask when abuse is suspected. As the first part in the forthcoming National Center on Law and Elder Rights (NCLER) Elder Justice Toolkit, this webcast will help lawyers tune in to potential warning signals and learn key questions to ask when elder abuse is suspected.

The fast paced, one-hour program will include checklists of signs of physical, behavioral, emotional, and sexual abuse, self-neglect, caregiver neglect, and exploitation.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar's chat box shortly before the webcast start time.
