OVW Enhanced Training and Services to End Abuse in Later Life

Event Date
Thursday, June 15, 2017, 01:00PM

Each Day, 10,000 baby boomers turn 65. As the number of older individuals in America increases, unfortunately so does the number of potential victims of elder abuse. Research indicates that one in ten older adults are abused and that two-thirds of elder abuse victims are women. This webinar on June 15 -- World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) -- will commemorate WEAAD 2017 and the efforts of communities and professionals around the country to confront elder abuse. This webinar will also provide participants with a detailed overview of OVW's Enhanced Training and Services to End Abuse in Later Life grant program. This grant program funds communities across the country to address elder abuse through training, services, and a coordinated community response. Participants will hear from previous years' grantees about the impact the grant program has had on their community's response to abuse in later life. Participants will also learn about steps they can take to prepare to apply for the grant.
