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.Elder Abuse Reporting.
