We are currently working with community partners to launch support groups for family, friends, and individuals affected by elder abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation. We have two on the calendar and welcome adult children helping their parent leave an abusive relationship, adult grandchildren helping an elder victim recover from a financial scam or exploitation, concerned friends or neighbors trying to assist a vulnerable adult experiencing neglect or self-neglect, and any other individuals impacted by the abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation of an older or vulnerable adult. Our first meeting at each the below scheduled sessions will include a presentation on these issues followed by a group discussion.
Faribault support group: Monday, August 21st, from 6-8 pm, at the Faribault Senior Center, 19 Division Street West, Faribault, Minnesota, 55021. Subsequent meetings will be held on the third Monday of every month.
Hastings support group: Monday, August 28th, from 6-8 pm, at the Tilden Community Center, 310 River Street, Hastings, Minnesota, 55033. Subsequent meetings will be held on the fourth Monday of every month.
