Elder Abuse – The Silent Crime Against Seniors Is on the Rise
Thousands of seniors are abused, neglected, and exploited each year, but few report or discuss the abuse because they are afraid. Many cannot take care of themselves because they are old, frail, and more vulnerable than most. Elder persons rely on family, trusted friends, and spouses to help meet their needs. Many are at risk of harm or abuse from neglectful and/or overwhelmed caregivers.
