Help identify elder abuse

NORTHERN MICHIGAN – Region 9 Area Agency on Aging is hosting a free Elder Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation Prevention Webinar Series via Zoom, on the third Wednesday of each month from 1-2 p.m. starting June 15. 

Approximately one in ten Americans over 60 have experienced some form of elder abuse. As with any public health challenge, no one can single-handedly stop elder abuse. It will take all everyone working together to build a community in which people of all ages are safe and supported. 

The webinars are free. 

  • June 15: Challenging Perceptions: Sexual Violence in Later Life
    Learn and define sexual violence, examine the stigma and barriers faced by survivors, and challenge your own assumptions to create a safer community presence.
  • July 20: Basics of Elder Abuse
    Elder abuse is any form of mistreatment that results in harm or loss to a vulnerable adult. Increasing awareness of elder abuse is a critical part of ensuring that all seniors’ human rights are respected and protected every day.
  • August 17: Basics of Reporting Elder Abuse
    Elder abuse, neglect and exploitation are highly underreported. Learn the factors that make a person more vulnerable or at risk for abuse, neglect or exploitation, and how to report elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation.
