Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging, Texas Adult Protective Services (APS), WellMed Charitable Foundation, WellMed Medical Management, and the Elder Justice Coalition began collaborating on a project on self-neglect in late 2016 with funding from an Elder Justice Innovation Grant from the U.S. Administration for Community Living. It builds on an earlier ACL-funded project to identify, screen for and report elder abuse, which found that self-neglect was by far the most commonly reported type of abuse (68% of allegations). The focus of the current project is to screen for risk factors for self-neglect among older adults and people with disabilities in WellMed clinics in Texas in the hopes of helping people avoid self-neglect and the negative outcomes associated with it.

In this webinar project partners will provide an overview of the study and discuss implications for practice and policy.
