12:19:21     From  Suzanne Ellerbrock : Recent visit to ER with my mom for heart issues.  They asked her if she felt safe at home.  This is not good if the potential abuser is in the room.

12:22:05     From  Carrie Grafton   to   Hosts and panelists : Elisabeth, no- I believe the statistic says that 42% of murders of people 60+ are committed by a family member. NOt 42% of people 60+ are murdered.

12:22:59     From  Leslie McTyre : The change in a son-daughter relationship with the effects of Alzheimer's is overwhelming and turned violent quickly because of the aggressive conduct of the frightened adult at what's happening to his/her mind.

12:25:23     From  pphillips : Whew! Thank you!

12:28:26     From  Roslyn Schmidt   to   Hosts and panelists : During illness, weak & vulnerable, easy prey.

12:42:37     From  Elisabeth Green : “improper influence” means influence, direct or indirect, which induces or attempts to induce consideration or action..." 22 USC § 2779(c)

12:47:59     From  Pam Luby   to   Hosts and panelists : I am with Maryland DHS in the office of adult services.  How can I get in touch with Ms. Schroeder for possible training for our caseworkers

12:49:08     From  Elva Roy : Hard to imagine that would really happen ???

12:49:12     From  Pam Luby   to   Hosts and panelists : My comment was not in response to this exercise.  I would like contact information for training

12:49:45     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Community   to   Pam Luby and all panelists : whoops sorry!  Here is her contact jschroeder@associated.org

12:49:51     From  Vanessa Ripps : Would it be Domestic Violence Program?

12:49:57     From  Jayme Duva : if in a facility, call ombudsman

12:50:09     From  cheryl montague : Looking at some of the warning signs and indicators for abuse, do you believe that sometimes people, particularly family members, do not know they are being abusive.  Sometimes I believe people feel they are doing their best and the stress is guiding their actions in some cases because sometimes people fall in the primary caregiving role as a family member and they feel overwhelmed. I think this is a topic that needs to be discussed more and taught. I think your information is spot on.

12:51:02     From  Leslie McTyre : RIGHT

13:00:40     From  Kathleen Morris : Thank you- so informative and engaging!

13:01:13     From  Patti Hutton : Thank you for this important presentation.

13:01:43     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Community : https://www.springalliance.org/

13:01:57     From  Pam Luby   to   Hosts and panelists : There has been talk of an elder abuser registry in Maryland similar to a child abuse registry.  Since most abusers abuse people they know  would a registry offer additional protections for people living in the community

13:04:33     From  Mari Anne Hamilton   to   Hosts and panelists : As an ombudsman, I visited several elderly persons with cognitive decline who became adamant that they did not want certain caregivers - it was because they were persons of color - "she doesn't know anything" or "I don't want HER telling me what to do."  That could be something to consider when someone is being accused of abuse or someone doesn't want a certain caregiver to enter their room.
