Millions of senior citizens live in nursing homes and assisted living facilities or receive care from helpers in their homes. These older adults face abuse issues for many reasons, including stress, short staffing, and dealing with aggressive behavior from those with dementia. Neglect, physical and emotional abuse are just a few of the problems widely occurring in this industry. If there is a chance of elder abuse, the best policy is always prevention.
We can help senior living organizations create and maintain a safe work environment through our Elder Abuse: Recognition and Prevention presentation.
Participants will learn:
- Which seniors are most likely to face abuse
- Examples of abuse and what to look for
