Though this knowledge portal, you will find tools and resources to improve your knowledge of elder abuse. We hope this knowledge will empower you to become a proponent of elder abuse prevention, an advocate for elder abuse victims, and a warrior in the fight against elder abuse.
You will also find tools and resources for family caregivers. Seventy to ninety percent of abuse occurs in the caregiver/care recipient relationship. So, it is very important to understand the dynamics of this dyad. The health and well-being of our family caregivers is directly linked to the healh and well-being of our elders. Knowledge is the key to protecting our elders.
Without knowledge, action is useless, and knowledge without action is futile.
