Understanding and Coping with Elder Abuse
Elder abuse is a crime. It is harm done to a senior by someone he/she knows and trusts such as a family member, visitor, social worker, doctor or nurse.
Warning Signs of Elder Abuse
Elder abuse can be difficult to discuss because the people doing the abuse are usually people the senior knows and trusts. It is not often reported because the senior is afraid of revenge by the abuser or is ashamed that they cannot handle the abuse in the home themselves, or the senior is concerned with being labeled as too demanding or senile.
