Resident-to-Resident Elder Mistreatment (R-REM)

CITRA has worked in collaboration with the Research Division of the Hebrew Home at Riverdale (HHAR) to develop training materials for long-term care staff. The purpose of these training materials is to educate staff about the prevalence of resident-to-resident elder mistreatment in long-term care facilities and to teach staff how to recognize and address it in their own facilities.

Goals & Objectives

The primary goal of R-REM is to train staff to recognize elder mistreatment by other residents in their own long-term care facilities and to learn how to manage it, including implementing safety and reporting guidelines. This training seeks to shed light on the prevalence and seriousness of resident-initiated mistreatment in order improve the quality of life for long-term care residents.
