Elder Abuse Landscape Assessment 2016 - Summary
To evaluate how the Elder Abuse Institute of Maine might best extend its victim services beyond those it currently offers through its Transitional Housing Support Program, we surveyed community service providers across the state whose experiences might indicate challenges or gaps in Maine’s existing service landscape.
The online survey was distributed via email link to 360 individuals (who were also invited to forward the link to colleagues) from across law enforcement, legal services, emergency services, domestic violence services, sexual assault services, aging and disability services, general assistance, housing, medical services, banking, and faith organizations throughout the state’s sixteen counties. A series of follow-up interviews were later conducted to gather additional information.
