MSSU hosts elder care “boot camp”

"We are dealing with legal strategies, and working with social workers allows us to also increase the impact we have on a human and family connection."

JOPLIN, Mo. – Four Staters learned about elder care at Missouri Southern, thanks to elder care “boot camp.”  Participants learned about elder care and related issues, like legal considerations and how to recognize elder abuse and neglect.

“Working with social workers is really encouraging to me,” says Christopher Dumm, an elder law attorney.  “I’m excited about that because from a legal standpoint, we are dealing with legal strategies, and working with social workers allows us to also increase the impact we have on a human and family connection.”
