Recognizing Elder Abuse and Knowing Your Rights

Aging in Place in Recognizing Elder Abuse

Abuse can happen to anyone—no matter the person's age, sex, race, religion, or ethnic or cultural background. Each year, hundreds of thousands of adults over the age of 60 are abused, neglected, or financially exploited. This is called elder abuse.

Some professionals miss signs of elder abuse because of lack of awareness or limited training on detecting abuse. The victim may not speak up for fear of retaliation, because they do not want to cause trouble for a relative, or due to a lack of physical and/or cognitive ability to communicate. Let us help you and your loved ones in recognizing elder abuse and knowing your rights.
