Elder and Dependent Adult Abuse Training

Did you know 1 in 10 adults over 60 will experience elder abuse? In San Mateo County, financial abuse is the most common form but it can also be physical, emotional, or sexual.

On Wednesday, February 22, 2017 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., join your neighbors in learning signs and symptoms to prevent elder and dependent adult abuse at the San Mateo County Health System’s information session, in Room 100, 225 37th Avenue in San Mateo. For every reported case of older adult abuse, 24 cases go unreported. You can help stop the cycle.
