Workshop: Abuse in Later Life

When older adults experience abuse, neglect, or exploitation they face unique barriers to seeking help and accessing services. Abuse in Later Life is when an older adult experiences physical, emotional/psychological, sexual, financial abuse tactics, and/or neglect in the context of a trusting relationship.

This training overviews unique abuse tactics older adults may be experiencing, how to best serve a more vulnerable population, which agencies you may need to partner with, and tips of working collaboratively to provide a whole-person response to this traditionally underserved population.

Presented by Ashley Carroll (Clackamas County) and April Quast (Clackamas Women's Services)
