NYC's first elder abuse center created by NYP/Weill Cornell in collaboration with community partners
Date:8/11/2009

NEW YORK (Aug. 11, 2009) -- NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center will create a New York City Elder Abuse Center in order to improve intervention and treatment for elder abuse cases in the New York City area. The first center in the New York area to focus on coordinating elder abuse cases, the Center has received grants totaling $375,250 -- $300,000 from the Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation and $75,250 from the FJC, A Foundation of Philanthropic Funds -- to develop the first phase of the Center's operations. It is expected to begin operations later this year.

Each year, as many as 10 percent of older Americans are injured physically, debilitated psychologically and exploited financially, often by an adult child or other family relative.

"Elder abuse cases are increasingly complex, especially in New York City. For example, both the victim and perpetrator may have mental illness, substance abuse issues or other health conditions. Neither may speak English," says Dr. Mark Lachs, who will serve as executive director at the New York City Elder Abuse Center. He is co-chief of the Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology, and director of the Center for Aging Research and Clinical Care at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center; and the Irene F. and I. Roy Psaty Distinguished Professor of Clinical Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College. "We are very grateful to the Samuels Foundation and our other supporters for joining with us during these economically difficult times to address the challenges presented by complex cases of elder abuse."

The New York City Elder Abuse Center will take a case consultation approach, hosting regular meetings with clinicians, city agencies and outreach organizations to decide on the best approach for each case. A given meeting might involve representatives from adult protective services, the district attorney's office, a mental health provider and a geriatrician.'/>"/>
