Elder Abuse Conference
Bethany Lippe on 08/29/2014
MHA’s annual Peane conference was held August 1, 2014 at the Spiritual Life Center. This year’s conference focused on Elder Abuse in Kansas. Deputy Attorney General Loren F. Snell Jr. and Special Agent Mark Montague (pictured above) presented on Vulnerable Adult Abuse in Kansas, Elder Abuse in Kansas and discussed recent legislative changes that effect the elderly population.
The Elder Abuse in Kansas conference objectives sought to educate attendees to identify characteristics of elder abuse, clarify techniques for successful investigation of elder abuse cases and describe recent legislation in Kansas designed to protect vulnerable adults.
MHA and MKSO’s annual Peane Conference presents on topics related to elders that are relevant to law enforcement, socials workers and other disciplines to encourage collaboration in the effort to prevent elder abuse. If you have an interest in protecting our vulnerable seniors, please contact our Mid-Kansas Senior Outreach Program at 316.685.1821 ext. 235.
