National Elder Law Network
The National Elder Law Network (NELN) is one of the first Web-based sources of comprehensive information on elder law and policy. For thirteen years, NELN has been a reliable source of free information on legal issues affecting seniors. Its content includes annotated research bibliographies, articles, and other materials on a wide range of topics aimed at the elderly, their attorneys and advocates, and their caregivers.
The Center’s work on a bill to amend the state’s Vulnerable Adults Act culminated in unanimous votes in the Minnesota House and Senate to pass H.F. 818.
Surveys & Manuals
Financial Exploitation Protocol Manual
The Center was awarded a nine-month grant by the Extendicare Foundation in September 2009 to produce a best practices manual for identifying and responding to financial exploitation of vulnerable adults in care facilities. This Manual and Model Protocol, completed in June 2010, is the first comprehensive guide to prevention, staff training, identifying signs of exploitation, advocating for the vulnerable adult, and reporting to authorities. Iris C. Freeman, Adjunct Professor, was the Project Director. Sara Blessing and former Center Scholar Ashley Helgason,2010 graduates of WMCL, were research assistants on the project.
