There are many different forms of elder abuse and senior living leaders must know how to identify and address them, but ultimately strive to prevent them. Elder abuse is an intentional act, or failure to act, by a caregiver, family or another person in a relationship who causes or creates a risk of harm to an older or vulnerable adult. Senior living communities should embrace a zero tolerance policy. Dr. Homeier, director of the Los Angeles County Elder Abuse Forensic Center, will educate attendees on the types of elder abuse, how to recognize them, appropriate actions to address different situations, and offer educational resources.
