Elder justice stakeholders in NYS responded to a survey developed by the NYC Elder Abuse Center (NYCEAC) and Lifespan of Greater Rochester, Inc. to assess the current adequacy of elder abuse victim prevention and intervention services around the state. The findings from the survey can be found in the newly released report, New York State Elder Abuse Prevention and Intervention Survey: Report of Findings. More →
The NYC Elder Abuse Center (NYCEAC) actively engages key decision makers in discussions about elder abuse and neglect to:
- educate them about the complexities and prevalence of this problem; and
- inform them of vital NYC elder justice-related programs, including the work of NYCEAC.
To this end, NYCEAC, in partnership with the Council of Senior Centers and Services (CSCS) and the Geriatric Mental Health Alliance of NY (GMHA), initiated the Leadership Education Project (LEP) to further these goals. The aims of this project are to:
- identify key NYS/NYC decision-makers who should be informed about elder abuse issues and NYCEAC’s work; and
- develop and implement an action plan for engaging them on these issues.
We will share the results of this important project on this website, so please check here for that information in the Spring 2012.
