Wolf Administration Launches New Online Training for Mandatory Reporting of Elder Abuse

In response to and in recognition of Gov. Wolf’s Executive Order on Vulnerable Populations, the Pennsylvania Department of Aging has created a free, online Mandatory Abuse Reporting training module to help aging and human services providers recognize and report elder abuse. The training was publicly launched on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD), which is commemorated on June 15 each year. Although the training is intended for mandated reporters, anyone who is interested in protecting older adults from abuse can take the training. The training takes about 30 minutes to complete and includes knowledge checks throughout to ensure that participants understand the information. Click here to learn more.
