"ADVOCATES FOR CONSERVED ELDERS" (ACE) PROGRAM

WHAT Trained volunteers visit conserved elderly and others in nursing facilities to serve as the conservatee’s advocate and look out for overall well-being and report signs of abuse or neglect. "Conserved" individuals are those who are no longer able to make their own decisions with respect to their health and finances and those decisions are then handed over to the state.
WHYSince the court is unable to perform regular checks on the large number of conservatees in the state’s nursing facilities, volunteer provide an extra pair of eyes and ears for the court on their well- being.

Program Description

Training for volunteers of the "Advocates for Conserved Elders" Program is 16 hours held over two days.

Guest speakers from the Probate Court, the Public Guardian, experts in aging, and
Wise & Healthy Aging’s Elder Abuse Prevention Department provide a wealth of information.

A large manual is distributed to volunteers for their reference when they are out in the field. Volunteers must report back to the program monthly regarding the number of visits and the nature of the visits to conservatees so that any elder abuse issues may be addressed.
