Illinois has selected an Advocacy Intervention Model to implement the Elder Abuse and Neglect Program. There is recognition that a victim of elder abuse and neglect is an adult in a vulnerable position. Under this model, the responsible agency assists the older person through intervention on his or her behalf for the purpose of serving as an advocate in guaranteeing protection of the older person's rights, and in order to assist the older person in obtaining needed legal, medical, and social service supports.

Attendees will receive an overview of the Seven Types of Abuse defined by APS Act of 2013:

  1. Physical
  2. Sexual
  3. Emotional abuse
  4. Passive neglect
  5. Confinement
  6. Willful Deprivation
  7. Financial Exploitation

After the session, attendees will be able to:

Define and distinguish elder abuse and related phenomena (e.g., self-neglect and abuse in later life)

Describe older victims, their abusers and the impact of elder abuse

Identify strategies to respond to possible elder abuse situations
