This crime robs our most vulnerable populations of their dignity, security, and in some cases, their lives.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- Define abuse and neglect.
- Identify and describe the three types of elder abuse and neglect.
- Identify the signs and symptoms of possible elder abuse and neglect.
- Describe the steps to take when elder abuse or neglect is suspected.
