As Maine becomes "older" this is an issue that needs to be discussed. This free 4 hour workshop will take place on Thursday, October 17th from 1 to 5 PM at the Town Hill Community Center in Bar Harbor.

This free 4-hour workshop will provide information about elder abuse, the signs of elder abuse, resources available for victims of abuse and their families, and helpful information for reporting cases of neglect and abuse.

There will be a variety of speakers representing Maine's Adult Protective Services, Next Step Domestic Violence Project, Maine State Police Troop J, Legal Services for the Elderly, medical providers, and social service providers.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required so organizers can insure they have enough space, and afternoon snacks.
