UNC School of Government: Getting Started with an Elder Abuse Multidisciplinary Team

The teams will be county-based. The core of each team should include representatives from the office of the clerk of superior court, the county department of social services, the district attorney's office, and law enforcement. Other team members may include guardian ad litem attorneys, public guardians, and representatives from hospitals, adult care homes, housing authorities, financial institutions, long term care ombudsman, faith communities, and mental health agencies.
