Elder Abuse Bytes E-Newsletter
Fall Edition

As we approach the season of gratitude, the NCEA is pleased to share its bounty of activities. In an exciting first year marked by productivity and innovation, we are continuing to raise elder abuse awareness and promote elder justice principles through our involvement in local and national presentations, participation at numerous conferences, and vibrant social media engagement. Drawing upon the expertise of our advisory board members and valued partnerships with subcontractors and community supporters, we have produced a diverse array of resources and training materials. With appreciation for the privilege to serve older adults, professionals, and the public, the NCEA presents its latest developments to you.

Nationwide Reach

The NCEA made a showing at many national conferences and meetings over the summer and well into the fall season. Members from the NCEA attended the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) conference in Chicago, IL, National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA) conference in Jacksonville, FL, National Adult Protective Services Association (NAPSA) conference in Anaheim, CA, National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA) conference in Jacksonville, FL, National Indian Council On Aging biennial conference in Temecula, CA, Grantmakers In Aging annual conference in Memphis, TN, and Consumer Voice annual conference in Alexandria, VA. Not only did we recommend a wide variety of resources and online websites, but we also provided expert technical assistance to attendees.

Elder Abuse Guide for Law Enforcement (EAGLE)

Elder abuse is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. EAGLE helps in effective identification, investigation, intervention and resolution of elder abuse cases brought to the attention of law enforcement. It is not only a guide for officers, but also can be a useful tool for any aging professional. Take a look at some of the resources that guide users on how to recognize abusers, make community resource referral, and look up more information regarding state statutes, and mandated reporting laws.
