POSITION: Public Health Coordinator

ORGANIZATION: The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Center for Elder Abuse Prevention and Research at The Hebrew Home at Riverdale

POSTING DATE: September 14, 2016

SUMMARY:   The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Center for Elder Abuse Prevention at the Hebrew Home at Riverdale seeks to add a Public Health Coordinator, Elder Abuse Prevention to its Weinberg Center team. This position is grant funded. As the Weinberg Center enters its second decade, it has successfully created a living laboratory for both the long and short-term study of various elder abuse intervention methods. The addition of a Public Health Coordinator, Elder Abuse Prevention into the Weinberg team will help to strengthen the social justice component of our work by helping to reduce health disparities, increase care equity, quality, and accessibility of services to victims.

A decade as pioneers in the elder abuse community has led the Weinberg Center to begin examining the ways that elder abuse intersects with other public health issues such as trauma, family violence and ageism. Analyzing elder abuse in the context of these larger forces as well as community integration, program design, and creating research priorities and methodologies predicated on a thorough analysis of these interlocking phenomena represents breakthrough work in the field, which the Weinberg Center sees as critical to the elder justice movement’s success. A Public Health Coordinator integrated into the Weinberg Center team will have a transformative effect on our robust, diverse and pioneering work, and further enhance our ability to provide training and community outreach programs that are appropriately designed to increase professional knowledge and public awareness on the phenomenon of elder abuse.

RESPONSIBILITIES: The Public Health Coordinator will:

  • Spearhead the design and implementation of a multi-site evaluation of all partner organizations in the SPRiNG Alliance, the national network of elder abuse shelter programs, which will include an analysis of client demographics, activities and outcomes. Ultimately, this data will be used to build capacity and provide technical assistance to the growing global shelter movement.

Publication of the results, in coordination with the Hebrew Home’s Research Department, will be a significant contribution to the corpus of public health literature on the issues of elder justice and shelter. The Public Health Coordinator will begin by conducting thorough assessment interviews of each of the SPRiNG Alliance partners, which include shelters at every stage of development.

  • Expand the Weinberg Center’s current outreach and education work via incorporating a public health lens into its current program’s design and implementation. This includes broadening perspective audiences, partnerships and educational content to include public health players, concepts and linkages. The Public Health Coordinator will thoroughly review all current Weinberg Center educational materials with an eye towards revisions and additions that incorporate public health messaging.
  • Serve as a liaison to hospital systems, which are critical partners in the Weinberg Center’s role as a client service provider, professional educator and cultural change agent. The Public Health Coordinator will design and implement strategic linkages with new hospital systems as well as using knowledge of the field to maximize existing partnerships.
  • Integrate public health knowledge and understanding into the team’s clinical work with shelter clients. The Public Health Coordinator will be a member of the Weinberg Center team and will collaborate to create and execute individualized service plans for each client. The addition of a public health voice to the team will allow the Weinberg Center to further strengthen and broaden its holistic, victim-centered services.

ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION: The Weinberg Center for Elder Abuse Prevention and Research (the Weinberg Center), a comprehensive prevention and intervention program for victims of elder abuse living in all five boroughs of New York City, was established in 2005 as the nation’s first emergency elder abuse shelter located within a long-term care facility (The Hebrew Home at Riverdale.) To date, the Weinberg Center has provided over 84,000 days of shelter for victims of acute elder abuse from across New York City and Westchester

County. The Weinberg Center’s core legal team plans and executes all legal action required in furtherance of each client’s care plan, including proceedings related to obtaining restraining orders, guardianship and orders of protection, as well as assistance with financial planning, housing, negotiation and prosecution of abusers. This ability to receive comprehensive coordinated care creates a unique opportunity for victims to recover their dignity, access justice and begin healing in their own lives.

Additional components of our mission include: 1) enhancing professional and public awareness, and knowledge about elder abuse through effective training and outreach; 2) building collaborative working networks; 3) successful replication of the Weinberg Center model. The Weinberg Center has successfully fostered the replication of our shelter model in twelve communities across the country to date. The right to self-determination of older adults continues to guide the spirit and activities of the Weinberg Center.

QUALIFICATIONS: The candidate we seek must have a Master’s Degree in Public Health and previous experience working in the field of Public Health in areas such as aging, health policy, or family health and have an interest in working with older adults.
