Elder Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation

Who are the victims of elder abuse, neglect and exploitation?  Does it surprise you to know that most elder mistreatment is committed, not by strangers, but by persons known to the victim, such as family members, caregivers and others in positions of trust?  How is suspected abuse reported?  And how can professionals work collaboratively to better address this complex issue?

These questions and more are addressed in this archived webinar and power point presentation titled “Elder  Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation.”  Dr. Paula Kupstas and Lisa Furr of the Virginia Center on Aging presented on the topic; Dr. E. Ayn Welleford (Virginia Commission on Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders/Virginia Commonwealth University) moderated the discussion.
