Resources, webinars, training and victims’ rights information

Victim Specialists work closely with prosecutors, law enforcement, and other staff members to ensure that elder abuse victims are treated with respect, know their rights, and understand their role within the criminal justice system. They help victims navigate the criminal justice system by providing support, assessing a victim’s needs, developing a safety plan, connecting victims to resources, and identifying gaps in service. They also ensure that staff are informed about elder abuse and the trauma that victims experience. Ultimately, a Victim Specialist wants the victim to experience justice, seek recovery and regain their sense of well-being. This section provides tools, training, and resources for Victim Specialists, as well as valuable information that can be shared with potential elder abuse victims.
