A comprehensive set of resources on reframing elder abuse has been released by FrameWorks Institute in partnership with the National Center on Elder Abuse at the Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California.

Grantmakers in Aging sponsored FrameWorks Institute, with funding from The John A. Hartford Foundation and the Archstone Foundation, with the charge of putting elder abuse on the public agenda. How can advocates raise the salience of elder abuse and build public and political support for systemic solutions to it? Answers are in the two new resources:

  • Strengthening the Support lays out an evidence-based communications strategy to introduce and define elder abuse as a matter of collective concern and advance systemic solutions to it; and
  • Talking Elder Abuse shows how to apply the research in communications practice.
