Elder abuse is a rampant and rapidly growing problem throughout New York State and across the country. While it is increasingly common, elder abuse remains dramatically underreported. This presentation is designed to raise awareness and understanding of the elder abuse epidemic and assist lawyers in identifying and addressing potential elder abuse within their pool of clients and potential clients. Participants will learn about the signs, symptoms, and red flags of different types of abuse, whether physical, emotional, or financial.
Presenters Deirdre Lok and Brooke Santoro, from The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Center for Elder Abuse Prevention at the Hebrew Home at Riverdale, review the results of the latest elder abuse research and what those findings mean for practitioners. Attendees will learn how to evaluate common ethical dilemmas that arise for attorneys attempting to address elder abuse concerns. The presenters discuss potential legal remedies as well as community resources, with a focus on practical and effective methods of prevention and intervention.
First rate presentation regarding elderly abuse by both presenters.
This was simply a great course. So critically important to prevent or discover and halt any type of abuse of an elderly. person. GREAT content. I have been an Assistant PD for almost 33 years and seen a lot) and had a mother with dementia. It's appalling how widespread a problem this is, from the landscape serviceman who knows the elderly customer can't see well & therefore doesn't remove the hedge trimmings and leaves them to rot through a mentally ill sibling who tried to steal her mother's money. AWARENESS is the first step in protecting a vulnerable person.
course was presented by obviously knowledgeable and enthusiastic attorneys
