Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this policy analysis was to examine Title VII: Allotments for Vulnerable Elder Rights Protection Activities, Chapter 3, Section 721: Prevention of Elder Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation of the Older Americans Act (OAA) Amendments of 2006 (P.L. 109-365). The legislation provided federal funding for prevention activities to protect the rights of elders. The in-depth analysis explored data from primary and secondary sources including government documents and websites, peer-reviewed journals, books, and statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Federal Interagency Forum on Aging-Related Statistics. It attempted to achieve a better understanding of the needs and services of the older population. The analysis begins with a legislative overview of the policy as it relates to elders and their mistreatment. The study utilized David Gil’s framework enhanced by Jimenez, Pasztor, Chambers, and Fujii. Limitations of the study and implications for future research and social work policy and practice are provided.
