Elder Rights

About Elder Rights Program

The goal of the Elder Rights Program is to address and focus on prevention, intervention, detection and reporting elder abuse, neglect and exploitation by presenting the senior consumer with options to enhance and protect their life and independence. The Elder Rights program also assists persons who voluntarily accept our services. The process includes these steps.

  • A confidential referral and intake process
  • Ongoing assessment of the situation and risks
  • Development of intervention plans to reduce identified risks
  • Continued follow-up until it is agreed that our services are no longer needed

Also available through this program is the Mandatory Reporter Training for Dependent Adult Abuse. Our Elder Rights Specialist provides and coordinates the mandatory reporter training for care facilities and their staff.
