On July 1, 2014 Colorado law mandated elder abuse reporting of those 70 and over. On July 1, 2016, Colorado expanded the law to include mandatory reporting of any “at-risk” adult 18 and over and expanded the scope of individuals required to report.

Are you a mandatory reporter? Mandatory reporters include: medical professionals, counselors, spiritual leaders, financial organizations, social workers, law enforcement agencies and many others. If so, you should know how to be an effective reporter of elder abuse.

CGS offers a workshop to help mandatory reporters remain in compliance with the law. This course helps reporters answer questions regarding:

  • Types of elder abuse
  • Responsibilities of a mandatory reporter
  • Who to contact
  • What happens after reporting

Learning how to properly identify and report elder abuse as a mandatory reporter or concerned citizen is vital to ensuring the safety and confidence of the Colorado elderly and their families.
