Time flies when you're blogging! We are proud to announce the two-year anniversary of NYCEAC's Elder Justice Dispatch Blog. Keeping in the tradition we began last year, in order to celebrate, we have summarized ten blogs from the past year and provide links to you for further reading. We are excited to share ten great blogs from the July 2013 - June 2014 stellar blog collection that collectively discuss myriad elder justice issues - from elder abuse in popular culture to podcast interviews with leaders in the field.

The NYCEAC is a public/private multidisciplinary partnership, bringing collective expertise to bear on the issue of elder abuse. Our values guide our work.
- Respect for elders and a concern for keeping elders safe and free from harm.
- Person-centered service, with each client having a right to privacy; a right to be free from fear, abuse and ageism; and a right to experience safety, dignity, well-being, self-determination and respect.
- Respect for each colleague and their individual discipline, understanding the challenges professionals experience when doing this work.
- Shared accountability – to the individual’s organization, to NYCEAC and the multidisciplinary team, when applicable.
- Sharing and leveraging existing resources to maximize efficiency.
- Transparent and effective decision-making processes, with all stakeholders at the table, having an equal voice.
