Abuse in Later Life Project

Central VA Task Force on Domestic Violence in Later Life - The Central Virginia Task Force on Domestic Violence in Later Life is a multi-disciplinary local partnership of organizations working since 1998 to raise awareness and ‌improve the community response to women aged 50 and older who experience domestic, sexual, or family violence.  We accomplish our work through quarterly, multi-disciplinary meetings which always include a professional development component; an annual cross-disciplinary training; workshops and trainings; and by providing technical assistance to agencies in developing best practices to address abuse in later life.

Executive Law Enforcement Toolkit is designed to allow executive level law enforcement to examine current practices and introduce information that helps expand knowledge of and response to elder abuse.

VCU Health Elder Mistreatment Training Hub - The Abuse in Later Life Project has developed this hub of resources for health care practitioners. Curated with invaluable guidance from providers within the field of health care, this hub will provide information about elder mistreatment in an easily shareable platform.

Professional Development - Enhancing the response to abuse in later life: a law enforcement training project. The goal of this statewide project is to enhance the law enforcement response to violence against older women in a comprehensive manner by providing trainings at the executive, supervisor, and detective/officer levels.
