Elder Abuse Prevention

100% federal funding provides resources for training of staff, outreach and educational activities, and cost-sharing for administrative supplies/materials in support of the locally funded Bureau of Adult Protective Services. The Guam SOA will ensure that the funds augment, and not supplant, activities that are carried out for the protection of vulnerable older individuals, to include the public education and identification of elder abuse. The alleged victim’s rights will be safeguarded and the case will be managed in accordance with applicable mandates while upholding the desires of the alleged victim.
