Research and best practices indicate that service providers who work together in coordinated ways are best positioned to meet the complex needs of elder abuse victims. Elder abuse can take a variety of forms including financial, emotional, physical, sexual, medication abuse and neglect. Hanna and district agencies and service providers from various sectors have been working to develop an elder abuse coordinated community response model. Once a response model is in place with improved coordination among service providers, capacity within our region will be enhanced to prevent and respond to elder abuse. The committee has developed community action plans and protocols for Hanna and area and has hosted a walk to raise awareness of elder abuse. The committee meets once a month. Contact Tanis for dates and times.
