The National Resource Center (NRC) for American Indian, Alaska Native & Native Hawaiian Elders is a grant project of the U.S. Administration on Aging. The goals of this project are to: assess the current status of Native Elders in Alaska; develop an understanding of the cultural values that drive expectations and perceived needs for care; and document "best, promising and emerging practices" that are in current use. Additional goals include soliciting recommendations for community responses to elder abuse, exploitation and violence that are appropriate to Alaska Native cultures and providing education to medical providers.
