Elder Justice Policy Brief

8. May 2015 10:26 by Nora Super | 1 Comments

Today, the White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA) released a policy paper on Elder Justice, a key focus area of the upcoming 2015 national Conference. 

The Elder Justice policy brief reviews three topic areas important to the aging community: the impact of elder abuse; responding to elder abuse; and federal efforts to address elder abuse.

This is the third in a series of policy briefs to be released by the White House Conference on Aging; a brief on Healthy Aging was released on April 10 and one on Long-term Services and Supports on April 23. An additional brief on retirement security will be released shortly. If you haven’t yet joined our mailing list, please sign up, and we’ll notify you about future briefs, upcoming events, and other topics of interest.

The briefs define and frame each issue area and reflect the most current evidence-based information on the issues. Each brief concludes with a series of discussion questions, and we encourage you to comment and share your feedback at policy@whaging.gov.

The White House Conference on Aging will collect the responses and use them to help shape our ongoing work for the 2015 national Conference. We look forward to hearing from you.
