We recently heard from Emily Crim, a Public Interest Fellow working in Boston with the "Elder Abuse Prevention Project" under the auspices of Greater Boston Legal Services. The project's important mission, now more than a year in development, is to "offer legal advice and representation of victims, provide training to care providers, community members, and seniors, as well as to advocate for systemic reform and build local networks that can prevent and intervene in cases of abuse." As part of this Project, they have recently launched a great new "Project Blog" to help get the word out.
Here's a link to their most recent post on "LGBT Elder Abuse: An Invisible Problem within an Invisible Community." Here's a link to the Project website too. Certainly the topics addressed here are relevant beyond the Greater Boston area!
Thanks, Emily, for reading our Elder Law Prof Blog and for sharing your latest news!
