Any professional working with a NYC-residing victim of elder mistreatment can utilize NYCEAC’s case consultation service. Please see Consultations on Elder Abuse Cases for more information.
At times, NYCEAC will recommend that the case be brought to an enhanced multidisciplinary team (EMDT) for review and coordination of services.
The following is the eligibility criteria for a case to be brought to one of NYCEAC’s EMDTs. Note: Cases are brought to an EMDT at the discretion of NYCEAC staff.
- The older adult who is being harmed fits NYCEAC’s definition of elder abuse AND resides in one of the 5 boroughs, or the abuse of a child or adult is occurring in a dwelling where someone 60+ resides.
- If the victim is under 60 OR there is abuse occurring to someone but nobody in the household is age 60+, the case will be considered for consultation at the discretion of the NYCEAC’s case consultation staff.
Funded by NYC Department for the Aging, the NYS Office of Victim Services, and the NYS legislature.
