Health care providers play a major role in educating older adults and those who work with them about bullying among older adults and strategies for preventing or coping with it. Learn ways to identify and train staff members to make sure they are aware:

  • It is not okay for residents to exclude one another from games or groups
  • It is not okay to deride someone for their clothing, smell, hairstyle or skin color
  • You should set limits that prevent any resident from violating another residents’ rights.

We will also demonstrate way to encourage and train older adults and staff to safely intervene when they observe bullying.
