Your Legal Duty – Reporting Elder and Dependent Adult Abuse

This week’s tip comes from a California Assisted Living Association update regarding the Department of Justice elder abuse video titled “Your Legal Duty”.

The DOJ Elder Abuse video is back online and available to access here. Bookmark this link to easily refer back to when you need it. Assisted Living communities are required to show this video as a part of the DOJ Elder Abuse Reporting Training. It must be administered to all employees, within six months of beginning operation of a new facility, and within 60 days of a new employee’s first day of employment.
