Elder abuse is shockingly common. More than four million older adults are abused each year in the United States; whether the form of abuse is defined as financial, physical, sexual, emotional, neglectful or a combination of these, it is devastating for the victims and for those who love them. With growing knowledge about the aging process, systems of care and health care reform, there is now an unprecedented opportunity to make a difference. Funders will learn about the backdrop in which elder abuse occurs and will be stimulated to think differently about how their priorities, present and future, directly and indirectly, can minimize this awful reality. Speakers will include the Co-Directors of the Center of Excellence on Elder Abuse & Neglect and the National Center on Elder Abuse, both located at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine.
This is a Philanthropy New York Collaborative Program with Grantmakers in Aging.
This program is “Partially Open.”
