Multidisciplinary Teams

Multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) identify gaps in services and find resources to better help victims of elder abuse. Team members include people with professional experience in law enforcement, social work, and other backgrounds. Members develop a multi-agency plan in response to each client referral.

Through a partnership with Weill Cornell’s New York City Elder Abuse Center, the Department for the Aging is working to enhance and expand MDT services that are currently offered in Brooklyn and Manhattan and to expand to the Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island.
