Consumer Voice Statement on Sexual Assault Against Residents of Long-Term Care Facilities

October 05, 2018

The current national dialogue on sexual assault raises many parallels with the affects of assaults against residents of long-term care facilities and people with dementia.  Consumer Voice has prepared the following statement on this issue that we have shared with members of the Senate Aging and Judiciary Committees - as they have jurisdiction over issues around aging and elder justice.  We encourage you to use the opportunity of raised visibility of this issue to contact your members of Congress, letting them know that this is a serious problem for vulnerable adults receiving long-term care and services, and we can do more to protect them.  

For more information on this topic, see our webpage that includes our recently released webinar and issue brief.
