Free Webinar: Closing the Justice Gap for Older Adults Part Three: Partnering with Adult Protective Services: Leveraging Strengths across Disciplines

When: Tuesday, June 13, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. P.T./2:00-3:15 p.m. E.T.

The third webinar in the Closing the Justice Gap for Older Adults training series will explore how Adult Protective Services (APS) and civil legal aid can work together to address elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation and how a broad range of civil legal remedies empowers restoring agency to older adults who have experienced maltreatment and reduces risk of recurrence.

1 in 10 older adults are estimated to experience elder abuse, and legal aid attorneys may see these cases come through their doors in a variety of ways. APS has access to unique tools and resources, and collaborative approaches can strengthen responses to abuse.

Presenters will share:

  • How elder abuse can present in common legal aid cases;
  • An overview of who APS can help, what issues they can help with, and the programs and services APS can provide;
  • Ethical considerations when working with APS, such as the concepts of mandatory and permissive reporting, and privacy and confidentiality rules for APS and legal aid and;
  • Examples of collaborations with APS, legal services, and other aging services providers that leverage all community resources to address issues of abuse, neglect, and exploitation.


  • Introduction: Francis Nugent, Legal Services Corporation and Tovah Kasdin, Administration for Community Living
  • Leslie McGee, APS Technical Assistance Resource Center
  • Sarah Galvan, Justice in Aging
