Accept the challenge to help end abuse of the elderly and persons with disabilities by completing the Understanding Abuse learning module.
Every month, one in 10 older adults worldwide experience some form of abuse. Yet, only 1 in 24 cases of elder abuse reported.
Elders who experience a form of abuse, even modest abuse, have a reported 300% higher risk of death. Even verbal abuse has been linked to seniors’ physical health issues and well-being.
All Idaho community members are encouraged to take this course to become aware of the signs of abuse and to assist in Elder Abuse Awareness.
