Elder Abuse

Elder abuse can take many forms.  It can happen to any elderly person when they have placed their trust with a person or organization and have been harmed.  Harm of the elderly can take several forms.  It may be physical, mental or financial.  Elder abuse can include acts such as:

  • Physical - slapping, hitting, burning, pushing, restraining or giving too much or too little medication or the wrong medication
  • Sexual  - forcing a person to participate in a sexual act
  • Psychological - ignoring, shouting, swearing, blaming, frightening, humiliating a person
  • Neglect - depriving a person of food, shelter, clothing, heat, comfort or proper medication
  • Financial - unauthorized or illegal use of a personís money, property, retirement income or other valuables

Abuse of this nature can come from anyone in a position of trust or authority of an elder person including a neighbor, a volunteer worker, a family member, an organization or a person charged with caring for the individual.

Some legal practices specialize in helping the elderly with wills, trusts, estate and retirement planning and protection from and prosecution of elder abuse.  There are also many organizations available that aid the elderly with such matters.
