Aging with Respect

General Material

Aging with Respect is an intervention addressing elder abuse, neglect and intimate partner violence with those later in life.  It is developed for those patients/clients with agency and capacity in non-crisis, non-emergency situations that provides information about healthy and safe relationships, and the impact of unhealthy relationships on health and well being. Topics include financial, emotional, and physical abuse and exploitation, education and prevention strategies, and information on seeking support.

The intervention is designed for doctors, nurses, social workers, counselors, aging services program staff, victim advocates and Adult Protective Services staff during wellness, primary care, social service and counseling visits, health specialty settings (e.g. podiatry etc.), rehab centers, assisted living and senior housing facilities, and aging service programs such as recreational and meal programs.
