World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the scope of elder abuse and educate the public about the warning signs of possible abuse, neglect and financial exploitation.  

The Awareness Day also encourages reporting of suspected elder abuse to the local Adult Protective Services unit and law enforcement; and sends a strong message that causing physical, emotional, or mental harm or injury, using methods of intimidation, taking advantage of a senior, or jeopardizing his or her health or welfare - is inexcusable and intolerable.

New York State Adult Abuse Training Institute

The 2015 Adult Abuse Training Institute (AATI) presented by the Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging on behalf of the NYS Office of Children & Family Services (OCFS), brings together participants from a variety of public and private service providers where networking and sharing expertise will be facilitated through an array of formal and informal activities.

This year, the focus of the AATI will be financial exploitation and multi-disciplinary teams. It brings together the perspectives of social services workers, law enforcement, attorneys, bank staff and others to share different methods of collaboration that have been effective in the struggle against financial exploitation of vulnerable adults. The goal of the AATI are always:

  • To build networks, collaboration, skill and knowledge of professionals working with vulnerable adults;
  • To promote the exchange of information, innovative thinking and best practices to improve the provision of services to protect and nurture vulnerable adults;
  • To nurture and sustain all those folks who are engaged in the effort to prevent and/or end abuse to adults in New York State.

For more information about the Adult Abuse Training Institute, please contact Ashley Faustin at or (212) 396-7833 or Paul Fleishmann at or (212) 396-7827.
