    Elder Abuse Ontario presents:
    Elder Abuse: Response Strategies for PSW's

    Wednesday, August 29th, 2018
    1:30 PM to 3:00 PM EST


    Whether they work in regulated or community-based sectors, Personal Support Workers play an incredibly important role in the prevention and intervention of elder abuse. Regularly interacting with their clientèle, PSW's get a glimpse into a person's life like no other service provider can. They are ideally positioned to not only recognize the signs of abuse but to also take action and ensure that people get the support and education needed to mitigate further incidents of mistreatment.
