New Council aimed at preventing elder abuse

Steven Rains - September 6, 2019 2:35 pm

A new council aimed at strengthening statewide efforts to prevent elder abuse has been created and will have its first meeting in October, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced today.

Schmidt established the Elder and Dependent Adult Abuse Prevention Council, which replaces a less-formal advisory group that had met for several years. The new council will be assigned to help develop local or regional multi-disciplinary teams to assist local authorities in investigating abuse and neglect, assemble working groups to focus on specific abuse-prevention topics, and coordinate and engage in education and outreach activities including creating a publicly available clearinghouse of information on elder and dependent adult abuse prevention.
