D8 – (IPV) Respect Your Elders: Families, Elders, Abuse, Exploitation, and Eldercaring Coordination – Karen Campbell, Linda Fieldstone, Kim Torres (1.5 CME Interpersonal Violence)
$15.00 – $18.00
As families age, years of anger and disappointment may surface in harmful ways against aging adults. It is crucial that we recognize warning signs of elder abuse and exploitation. Using real-life scenarios, attendees will identify issues elders face and review strategies to protect them. Eldercaring Coordination will be highlighted as a way to preserve the elders’ autonomy, dignity, and voice in high-conflict situations. Participants will earn IPV credits.
