F.C.S.S/R.C.H.H.S has developed a resource binder which includes a PowerPoint presentation and accompanying binder of related material for interested parties to access. The use of this resource is to facilitate an awareness of physical, verbal, and financial abuse of elders.
This project will allow the community to become more involved in providing seniors with information on personal safety, home security, elder abuse and fraud. Anyone can help reduce elder abuse by becoming educated as to what constitutes elder abuse, the rights of seniors, and where help can be found in our community.
Our goals for this project is to prevent elder abuse, neglect, and self-neglect through education, advocacy, and response. We hope to increase awareness and prevent mistreatment of elders so all adults can be free from abuse, neglect and exploitation.
