  • Elder Abuse, Exploitation and Self-Neglect

    Elder Abuse, Exploitation and Self-Neglect

    09:00 -15:30
    2017-10-02

    44 South Main Street, Randolph

    44 South Main Street, Randolph

    Elder Abuse, Exploitation and Self-Neglect ~ $10.00
    Monday, October 2, 2017, 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
    This training will present a general overview for new case managers of the issues of elder abuse, exploitation, and self-neglect.  Along with physical and sexual abuse, elder abuse in the form of financial exploitation has dramatically risen in the last few years, with some scams specifically targeted to fleece the elderly.  Self-neglect is often hidden but is a complex and growing issue that impacts the elder, the family, and the community.  Topics include:

    • Understanding the abuse, neglect and exploitation of vulnerable adults
    • The interface between elder abuse and domestic violence
    • The interface between elder abuse and animal abuse
    • The role of Vermont Adult Protective Services
    • The complexity of working with people who are self-neglecting
    • Navigating the difficult terrain of determining competence and capacity for self-care in elders

     

    ~ This training fee is reduced through support of special funding from the Vermont Attorney General’s Office. ~
