Alzheimer's, Dementia, and Elder Abuse

Responding to Elder Abuse Victims With Alzheimer’s Disease or Other Dementias

Please join the EJI webinar on July 19, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. eastern time, as Nina Shaw, Trial Attorney, Civil Division Frauds Section, hosts a discussion with Lt. Hank Levenson (Ret.) and Sgt. Tim Sutton, trainers with the International Association of Chiefs of Police. The rate of elder abuse is even higher for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias than it is for the elder population overall. Professionals responding to an incident or a case involving elder abuse may encounter older adults with dementia. Learn how dementia impacts an elder abuse investigation and discover some of the best ways to respond effectively.
