Collaborative Elder Abuse Prevention Project Quarterly Report.
McDaniel, Garry L.
The Texas Department of Human Services, in collaboration with 13 other public and private organizations, co-sponsored a statewide collaborative elder abuse prevention project, to prevent abuse of elderly and disabled adults. The goal of this project is to develop a comprehensive, long-range plan for the prevention of elder abuse, a method for achieving a coordinated service delivery system for abused and neglected elders in Texas, and a statewide public awareness campaign to increase the public's ability to identify and report elder abuse and neglect. This quarterly report describes project activities from January 1 through March 31, 1989. After an executive summary, a background discussion of the problem of elder abuse, and a statement of goals and objectives, accomplishments for this quarter are summarized according to the 18 tasks included in the project's work plan. The report concludes with an award announcement, a brief statement of plans for the next quarter, and a budget. The agenda for the executive steering committee meeting along with a copy of a training flyer for validation therapy and an announcement of an upcoming adult protective services conference are appended.
