Preventing and Responding to Elder Abuse: Virtual Town Hall Discussions

  • June 16 @ 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

In Pennsylvania, statewide reports of elder abuse have increased by 80 percent over the past five years. This abuse can be experienced through neglect, physical, emotional or sexual abuse and financial abuse. Isolation resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic has
also contributed to making older Pennsylvanians vulnerable to abuse.

Please join us for two virtual town hall sessions, hosted by Pennsylvania’s Advisory Council on Elder Justice in the Courts.

Participants will hear from both victims and panelists about their experiences with elder abuse and financial exploitation, what Pennsylvania’s courts and justice partners are doing to address these issues, how to recognize elder abuse, what to do if abuse is
suspected, and available resources. A Q&A session with panelists will follow.
