Description

Please join us for lunch on September 13th. This presentation is open to the general public and is suitable for community agencies as well.

How does elder abuse affect me?

Elder abuse can truly happen to anyone. Research indicates that one in ten American elders are affected by some type of abuse. Unfortunately, abuse can happen in all types of relationships as a result of family dynamics, caregiver interactions, or targeted scams that prey on vulnerability. Through the PREVNT program you can learn how to recognize high risk situations and various ways to get assistance. Only through YOU can we make progress in changing the statistics and address the abuse that is occurring in our communities.


PREVNT = (Prevent Elder and Vulnerable Abuse, Exploitation, Neglect Today)

  • Discover resources in your community

  • Learn how to protect yourself and your wallet.

  • What can be done if you have been a victim of financial exploitation.

  • How to spot a friend or family member that might be living in a high risk situation.
