Elder Abuse and Neglect – What Would You Do?
Imagine if your parent, grandparent, friend, aunt or uncle were spoken to harshly or touched in a hurtful or rough manner. How would that person feel? How would you feel? Elder abuse is an under-reported problem with devastating and even life-threatening consequences. It’s important to recognize situations that may be considered abuse, neglect or a possible crime and understand steps that can be taken to speak up for those that are not being treated correctly.
