Welcome to the Education Page. Here you will find resources to help seniors. Often CNAs are closest to the patient and encounter various scenarios in which they may be unfamiliar with on how to handle.

How to Spot Elder Abuse
Although recognizing elder abuse can be difficult, NCEA has identified the following warning signs that may be an indication that further attention and action is needed.
An older adult may be experiencing elder abuse if it appears that they:

  • are socially isolated or cut off from contact with friends and/or loved ones;
  • are confused or depressed;
  • are undernourished or dehydrated;
  • appear dirty or have unexplained bruises or bed sores;
  • are not receiving care for health problems—eyesight, dental, hearing, incontinence;
  • are abusing drugs or alcohol;
  • and have trouble sleeping;

The Older Americans Act of 1965 (OAA) established a national network of federal, state, and local agencies to plan and provide services that help older adults to live independently in their homes and communities. This interconnected structure of agencies is known as the Aging Network
Individuals 60 years of age and older are eligible for services under the OAA, and priority attention is given to those who are in greatest need. The OAA, as amended, created the primary vehicle for organizing, coordinating, and providing community-based services and opportunities for older Americans and their families.
