Elder Abuse Committee
Description: The Elder Abuse Committee’s
mission is to raise awareness within the New York State legal community about
issues of exploitation and mistreatment of older adults. Elder abuse is a widespread, growing problem
and attorneys are effectively positioned to serve as watchdogs in identifying,
addressing and remedying incidents of elder abuse within their pool of clients
and potential clients. Through substantive educational programming, resource
creation and distribution, and community building, the committee’s goal is to
increase legal practitioners’ proactive and informed responses to elder abuse.
