Grants: Developmental Research on Elder Mistreatment

This could be especially useful for small communities. Some of our neglect and mistreatment can be spotted, if not understood why (Neglect of Bethel Elders again, Senior Center staff defends care of elders, Letter to the Editor On Neglecting Seniors, ). But we have other instances which are not seen, not recognized Elder Abuse and Neglect Assessment, or even generally recognized as acceptable (and therefore not recognized as mistreatment). We tend to think of mistreatment as only an institutional problem, but if a community is too small to have institutional awareness, what then?

Department of Health and Human Services announces funds to initiate the systematic scientific study of Elder Mistreatment in community and institutional settings. The research priority areas include: (1) innovative methods for estimating incidence; (2) standardization of definitions and measurement; (3) elaboration of risk factors; (4) methods of survey, clinical, and psychosocial identification of Elder Mistreatment; and (5) identification of Elder Mistreatment in institutional settings. Eligible applicants include city or township governments, county governments, independent school districts, public and state controlled institutions of higher education, state governments, nonprofits, faith-based organizations, private institutions of higher education, and for-profit organizations. The deadline for applications is October 25, 2006. Approximately $1,100,000 is available to fund awards up to $200,000.
