Reducing the Impact of Ageism on Victim Services
The presenters will delve into biases held, particularly that of ageism. In so doing, the group will explore the nuances of ageism, the effects of ageism, and how victim services may be viewed by older adults. Together, the group will also explore ways to make services for those victimized in later life more sensitive and welcoming. The presenters will also discuss dementia, Alzheimer’s and differing abilities.
