The Abuse Intervention/ Prevention Model (AIM) Project introduces and AIM Picturetests a model that integrates the multiple factors associated with risk for elder abuse and neglect in adults with dementia and their caregivers. The objectives are to (1) develop and implement an assessment tool that generates a risk profile, (2) develop and implement a toolkit of existing interventions that specifically address the identified risk factors, and (3) analyze risk profiles and case outcomes to see if common patterns emerge among three domains: the person with dementia, the caregiver, and the context.

This project is funded thanks to a grant from the Administration for Community Living (ACL).
