We invited the pioneers and implementors of innovative model programs against elder abuse to explore the nature of elder abuse, and we asked them to share their experiences in creating solutions to deal with the problems faced in their endeavors to eliminate elder abuse. Conferees came from across the country, Canada, and Australia. They represented social services, academia, law enforcement, and prosecution entities. They came together to examine the clinical and legal issues of elder abuse, to promote successful intervention and prosecution models, and to learn from each other.

Fault Lines in the Shifting Landscape: The Future of Growing Older in California 2010
Entering the 21st century, California's aging population raises many concerns for public and private decision makers, yet information about aging in the state is fragmented, uneven, uncatalogued, and rarely synthesized for decision making. No one has a "big picture" perspective on California's aging population or the critical issues it faces. In this report, we hope to bring clarity to a complex issue and support decision making across the state. We describe the key driving forces that will shape the future of growing older through the next decade and provide a context for understanding how the complexity and size of the Golden State's aging challenges differentiate it from other places. We focus on what to expect between now and 2010 and provide a window into the dramatic growth of elders after 2010. The report also offers eight guiding principles to navigate this demographic shift and serve as starting points to begin dialogue and initiate strategic action today.
