The Role of the Criminal and Civil Justice Systems in Elder Abuser Prevention

"Holding abusers accountable and ensuring that elderly victims are protected and compensated for their losses requires that lawyers, law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, judges, and victim advocates are sensitive to the special vulnerabilities and needs of elderly victims. New approaches are needed for handling cases involving both victims and perpetrators who have physical and cognitive impairments." - LisaNerenberg
