Elder Abuse and Mandated Reporter Trainings: A SF DAS Core Training, w. IOA (1.5 Continuing Education Units)
August 18th, 2-3:30 p.m.
Mandated Reporters are by law any person who has assumed full or intermittent responsibility for care or custody of an elder or dependent adult, whether or not that person receives compensation, including administrators, supervisors, and any licensed staff of a public or private facility that provides care or services for elder or dependent adults, or any elder or dependent adult care custodian, health practitioner, clergy member, or employee of a county adult protective services agency or a local law enforcement agency.
Elder Abuse is a growing problem. It is imperative that all DAS Staff understand the types of elder abuse, the warning signs of abuse, related laws and the requirements of Mandated Reporters. Join us for this Elder Abuse and Mandated Reporter training with representatives from the Elder Abuse Prevention Program at the Institute on Aging.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
– Describe at least three types of Elder Abuse
– Explain the role of a mandated reporter and the process for reporting abuse
– Identify at least three abuse red flags
