You’re Invited to Attorney General Rosenblum’s Elder Abuse Conference!

In Oregon, financial abuse costs older adults millions of dollars each year. And, with the estimated number of Oregonians who are 65 or over excepted to rise to 20 percent of the population by 2030, real money is on the line for Oregonians and their families.

For the first time ever, you are invited to a special session open to the public during Attorney General Rosenblum's Elder Abuse Conference. The virtual session is free, and open to all interested Oregonians!

Have you ever wanted to know how to report suspected elder abuse? Or what happens after a report of suspected abuse is made? Are you curious what government agencies are responsible for investigating suspected abuse? Or what to do if there is no investigation or prosecution?

Join us on October 27, 2021 from 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM/PST for a free virtual session that will address these questions. Presenters include:

  • Nicki Holmes, Adult Protective Services Manager, Oregon Department of Human Services
  • Wendy Bigelow, Nurse Investigator, Oregon Department of Justice
  • Ramon Rodriguez, Special Agent, Oregon Department of Justice
  • Keir Boettcher, Deputy District Attorney, Marion County
  • Megan Johnson, Attorney, Pickett Dummigan McCall LLP
