Special Interest: Abuse Prevention Procedures for Vulnerable Adults
Does your organization work with the elderly, refugees, new immigrants, homeless persons, individuals in domestic violence situations, people with disabilities, adults with mental illnesses, individuals in crisis or other vulnerable adults? Are you doing everything you can to prevent abuse within this sector? Vulnerable adults are more susceptible to physical, sexual, emotional, financial abuse and neglect than the general population. Let’s Plan to Protect®!
This webinar is designed for organizations serving vulnerable adults and will provide you with abuse prevention procedures for this sector. Melodie Bissell, the President and CEO of Plan to Protect® will raise awareness of the risks and vulnerability this sector of society faces and address practical prevention procedures to assist in protection. Having policies in place around hospital and home visits, off-site trips, counseling, washrooms, personal care support, and reporting abuse will protect those who are vulnerable, your volunteers/staff and you as an organization. Policies also demonstrate to your community your HIGH STANDARD of protection and your commitment to safety. Let’s raise the bar on protection!
