Take Action to Prevent Senior Abuse
As people age, they can become emotionally, physically, and cognitively frail. They may not see or hear as well as they used to, and many develop cognitive problems such as dementia. As a result, they become increasingly vulnerable to abuse and neglect.
Elder abuse is a significant public health problem. Each year, thousands of adults over the age of 60 are abused, neglected, or financially exploited and many of the cases aren’t reported. Victims of elder abuse and neglect may feel ashamed of their abusive experiences. In majority of cases, they are abused by a family, loved one or trusted caregiver.
Elder abuse is against the law, and immediate and long-term help is available to victims. If you suspect that an older neighbor, acquaintance, friend, or relative is being abused, neglected or exploited, tell someone you know who can help.
