SANE Training Curriculum

Stop Abuse & Neglect of Elders

The Department on Aging and The Medical College of Wisconsin’s Center for Healthy Communities developed the SANE curriculum as a training tool for agencies that employ workers who have regular contact with elderly persons. The SANE curriculum can also be used by others who are interested in learning how to recognize and respond to elder abuse and neglect.

The materials can also be used by others who are interested in learning how to recognize and respond to elder abuse and neglect. 

There are two ways to use the materials

This project was funded by the Healthier Wisconsin Partnership Program, a component of the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin endowment at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Videos were produced by students in the UWM's Peck School of the Arts DocUWM Program. The persons in the videos are real victims of elder abuse and neglect. Their stories are true.
