CARES Elder Abuse and Awareness Prevention   

The CARES® Elder Abuse Awareness and Prevention Online Training Program focuses on how to recognize signs of elder abuse, and the differences between neglect and self-neglect. It also describes many positive things you can do to help prevent elder abuse.

If you ask someone about elder abuse, they will immediately think of examples of physical abuse such as bruises, a black eye, or even broken bones. This program explores many other areas of elder abuse, however, including emotional abuse, financial abuse and exploitation, caregiver neglect and self-neglect, and sexual abuse. It goes on to teach you strategies to recognize when these types of may be occurring, and what you and or are required to do. The program also teaches how to prevent frustrating care interactions with the person you are caring for, a common precursor to elder abuse.

This program has 4 modules (3 hours). The modules include:

  1. What is Elder Abuse
  2. Dementia and Elder Abuse
  3. The CARES® Approach and Elder Abuse Prevention
  4. Community Resources
