“Too many older Americans are being abused, neglected, or exploited by someone they thought they could trust.
As with other types of abuse, the majority of elder abuse cases go unreported. Victims may feel too embarrassed, isolated, guilty, or afraid to report abuse.
Elder abuse can be: neglect, financial abuse or exploitation, psychological, emotional, sexual, and physical. If you suspect that someone you know is being abused, or if you are a victim of elder abuse, there are local resources available to help you.” (June 2014 AARP)
