Program Description

"We provide presentations to professionals on how to identify, prevent, and report elder abuse. We provide presentations to older adults on how to protect themselves against abuse and scams."

"...By helping key elder abuse agencies to collaborate, the Center improves each agency's response to incidents of abuse. This invaluable consultation between elder abuse experts helps each agency determine the best course of action with regard to specific cases."

The San Francisco Elder Abuse Prevention Forensic Center Program is a collaborative,
