Elder Abuse in the 21st Century
Castle Keep has created a 9-hour course that is taught through Clovis Adult Education. The class is held on six consecutive Wednesdays from 6 to 9 pm, at the Clovis Adult Education Campus at 1452 E. David E. Cook Way. The campus is at the corner of E. David E. Cook Way and Sunnyside, just south of Herndon.
The course is designed for all age groups and provides information on the causes and effects of elder abuse, how to prevent abuse, and what local resources are available.
9 CEU hours are available for RNs, LVNs, and CNAs. Cerificates of attendance are available upon request.
Though this portal, you will find tools and resources to improve your knowledge of 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.
Next class starts in June 12, 2013, at 6 pm. Call for further information.
