Elder Abuse Awareness Month: Purple Campaign

Elder AbuseAwareness
Many who work in the field of elder services know that elder abuse is a common issue that often goes unreported. Given the prevalence of elder abuse, it is critically important to recognize common warning signs: 

  • 1. Unexplained injuries or financial loss
  • 2. Isolation
  • 3. Verbal abuse or threats
  • 4. Changes in mood or behavior
  • 5. A rapid decline in health of unexplained weight loss
  • 6. Neglected care needs
  • 7. Hesitation to speak openly

----June is Elder Abuse Awareness Month, if you are concerned about an older adult and have reason to believe they are being abused, call the Statewide Elder Abuse Hotline at 1-800-922-2275. All calls are confidential and are referred to local Adult Protective Services, which can investigate and determine the best course of action to alleviate risk.

We had a great response to the class with 32 Officers participating from Cambridge, Haverhill, Hingham, Lowell, Medford, Somerville, Tewksbury, Waltham, Wilmington, and Woburn.

Crisis Intervetion Training is 40hr. training focused on providing information and tools to inform Police response to individuals and families impacted by behavioral health. We are fortunate to have state and local community service providers who partner with us to provide content knowledge. We would like to thank Cambridge Health Alliance, Vinfen, The Psychological Center, Veterans' Administration, Department of Youth Services, NAMI, North Shore Elder Services and Riverside Trauma Center to name a few. We'd like to also thank the departments who participated by sending officers to our training. Lastly, a special thanks to the outside agencies who provided amazing speakers and our host for the event, the Tewskbury Police Department.
