This network brought an innovative solution to protecting some of Texas' most vulnerable seniors and the model we use can be scaled up or down and used anywhere. The TEAM Institute includes experts in abuse, neglect, exploitation and self-neglect including geriatric physicians, geriatric nurses, gerontologists and geriatric social workers. The elderly are vulnerable and due to lack of social support, cognitive ability and financial security they are at risk of maltreatment.
