WEBINAR: Legal Basics: Elder Abuse

By January 18, 2017WEBINAR

When: Tuesday, February 14 at 11:00 a.m. PT/ 2:00 p.m. ET.

The recent White House Legal Aid report highlighted a troubling finding: one in 10 older adults and close to 50% of people with dementia are victims of elder abuse. Legal and aging network services help communities prevent elder abuse and help victims of elder abuse access services and justice.

Lori Stiegel, a nationally recognized expert on older adults and elder abuse, presents a Legal Basics Webinar to help legal and aging network professionals prevent elder abuse. During this training, Lori provides a basic overview of legal protections, information attorneys and non-attorneys need to spot and report on elder abuse, and legal interventions to protect against elder abuse, neglect and exploitation.

Newer legal services attorneys, law students, aging and disability network professionals looking to understand the basic information about elder abuse are encouraged to attend.

Presenter:
Lori Stiegel, Senior Attorney, American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging
