Using Your Tribal Values To Develop Elder Protection Code: A Step-by-Step Guide for Communities

General Material
Published Date
August, 2008

The purpose of this workbook is to protect elders from abuse in their communities. This workbook proposes that each community develop a process to address the particular elder protection needs within that community. The result of such a process could be the development of a code or law to address the protection of the community's elders. However, many steps can be taken to address community issues, and just having the dialogue begin is a very positive step. If a code is not immediately developed, policies can be developed to address elder protection. The sky is the limit, but it is presumed that any journey to the sky will begin on the ground.
