Elder Abuse - Under Construction

 

Elder Abuse is any action or inaction by self or others that jeopardizes the health or well-being of an older person. An act of harm or the neglect resulting from a failure to act is especially detrimental when inflicted by those in a position of trust, power or responsibility.

 

Elder abuse doesn't discriminate. It exists in all communities and is present in all cultural, racial class, socio-economic and religious groups.
