The Project

GBLS’s Elder Abuse Prevention Project works to address elder abuse issues as they arise. Dvora worked to ensure that older adults in the Boston area live free from abuse, neglect, and exploitation. She also developed¬†strategies to prevent abuse from occurring in the first place.

Dvora was the right person for the project because she served as a caregiver for her grandmother and great aunt as they age.
