Elder Abuse 101 Workshop

Thousands of older adults in New York are abused, neglected, and exploited every year, and the number is growing. JASA’s Elder Abuse Training Institute is an interdisciplinary program, which improves the understanding of and response to the various forms of elder abuse. The Institute educates social service, health, legal, and financial professionals as well as the public.

These workshops are provided by JASA in partnership with Lifespan of Greater Rochester, Inc. and Brookdale Institute for Healthy Aging of Hunter College.


This program is funded in part by Lifespan of Greater Rochester, Monroe County Office for the Aging, NYC Council through the DOVE Initiative, New York State Office for the Aging, US Administration on Aging, and participant contributions.
