When a report is made, an elder abuse caseworker, trained by DoA, responds within a specified timeframe and conducts an assessment. If abuse is substantiated, a plan is developed to reduce or eliminate the abuse. All reports and records are strictly confidential. A competent older person may decline an investigation and services.
