Description

This article describes a 2-year collaborative project in Cleveland, OH, that improved the reporting and management of potential and suspected elder abuse situations involving persons with dementia. Educational curricula for cross-training, screening tools, and referral protocols were developed and tested for staff and volunteers in adult protective services and dementia care. A handbook for caregivers of persons with dementia was produced that enables caregivers to self-identify elder abuse risk and seek appropriate interventions to prevent abuse. Project organization, implementation, and evaluation are discussed along with strategies for replication in other communities.
