Event description

Description

Elder abuse, neglect and mistreatment affects us all and too often goes unreported. Not all health care workers, nurses aides, nurses, or social workers, really know how to identify elder abuse, neglect or mistreatment and frequently, even if they do recognize the issue, they do not always know what to do about it.

This event is designed to help the frontline care worker understand, recognize and report elder abuse, neglect or financial exploitation. Come and learn from the experts with presentations by:

J.D. Shepherd, Supervisor for Adult Services at the Department of Health & Human Services---- who will provide insight in to how and when to report suspected abuse, neglect or finanical exploitation.

Anji Phillips, Investigative Teams Coordinator, Kalamazoo County Area Agency on Aging, IIIA----who will provide an overview of the Kalamazoo County Elder Abuse Coalition and what Kalamazoo is doing to combat this issue.
