Elder Abuse SurveyPosted Friday April, 17th 2015 3:41PM
The Salem Police Department, the Office on Violence Against Women and North Shore Elder Services are teaming up and have a survey for you. Please see below.
Our community has received funding from the Department of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women to create or enhance services for older victims of abuse. In order to gather the kinds of information that will help us plan activities and services that better respond to the needs of victims of abuse in later life, we are asking older adults (anyone 50 +) and service providers throughout our community to share their experiences. Your ideas are important to us.
Individuals who are age 50 and older may be hit, yelled at, or sexually assaulted. They may be neglected or have had money or possessions stolen. Older victims are most generally harmed by someone they know; often someone they love or trust, such as a spouse, partner, adult child, other family member or a caregiver.
You may know an older adult who has been or is being harmed.
You may want to talk to someone before or after taking this survey. If you need further information before or after taking this survey please contact Lisa at 978-750-4540. All responses are kept confidential.
