Many speakers are lined up to share information, including Adult Protective Services, Legal Services for the Elderly, Maine State Police, medical providers, social service agencies and financial institutions.

The goal is to provide basic elder abuse 101 training and for the audience to meet people from the various agencies who play a role in responding to cases of abuse, neglect and exploitation. They can also learn about the signs of abuse and what they can do to report a case or link to services and resources.
