  • The amount of information provided in this video was great. ... CAS ...great resource to have for support and safety... offered a non-judgmental & accepting stance ... also enjoyed the summary as to what constitutes abuse and the different forms.

  • I found this information very useful because it is rarely talked about. Personally I would like to see regular conversation about elder abuse to increase awareness and to boost prevention.

  • I spoke to a caller today about gambling issues and felt much more informed after having viewed these two videos. Thank you for these great sessions!
