"I can't thank the LEARN Case Manager enough for her response and support when my mom became a victim of financial abuse. She provided us with counseling, connected us with legal assistance, and helped us access community resources to ensure my mom's safety and well-being. Her dedication and expertise made a significant difference in our lives during a challenging time."

"As a caregiver, I attended one of LEARN's educational presentations, and it opened my eyes to the signs of elder abuse. The workshop was informative and empowering, giving me the knowledge and tools to recognize and prevent abuse. I now feel confident in protecting the seniors under my care, and I'm grateful to LEARN for their commitment to educating the community and making a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable seniors."
