Abstract (Summary)

Elder mistreatment is a growing problem that has serious consequences for the health and well-being of elderly individuals. Assisted living facilities are continuing to expand as a type of residential care for older adults, yet residents at assisted living facilities may be at risk for abuse and neglect. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal and identify a funding source for the purpose of designing an outreach and education program for elderly in assisted living facilities to increase their knowledge about abuse and neglect, available support services, and strategies for handling abusive situations. The identified potential funding source for the proposed program was the Archstone Foundation. Securing funding was not a requirement of this thesis project.
