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. The committee developed community action plans and protocols for Hanna and area and has hosted walks to raise awareness of elder abuse.
