Elder Abuse in People Living with Dementia: Considerations for Prevention, Detection and Intervention
Wednesday, June 23, 2021 2:00-3:00 PM ET
Elder mistreatment is common in our society, particularly among older adults with cognitive impairment and dementia. Using practical clinical and legal tools, we can look for high-risk situations and prevent abuse, and we can detect abuse at early stages to stop it from getting worse. Led by a physician and an attorney with years of relevant experience, this webinar will discuss indicators that should raise concern and practical tips on when and how to intervene. It will also address the complicated issue of capacity.
The webinar will be recorded and available at nadrc.acl.gov. Please direct any questions to Sari Shuman at [email protected].
