Elderly Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation
Our aging population is growing, and unfortunately, the cases in elderly abuse, neglect, and exploitation have also increased along with it. Any physical or sexual abuse is considered elderly abuse by law. Whereas elderly neglect typically mean the “failure to provide necessity” according to the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. Finally, taking advantage of seniors financially is defined as elderly exploitation. Often time the problems are caused by family member, a trusted friend, or caregivers, which can makes it difficult to recognize at times because these issues often happen in private settings. Agencies such as the Adult Protective services or Department of Social Services are established to provide help in dealing with abuse, and an elder law attorney are often helpful in taking steps to protect victim from further abuse, in addition to finding ways to secure a return in assets from exploitation. If you suspect your loved ones is experiencing, or was a victim of previous elderly abuse, neglect, or exploitation, talk to them and find help immediately.
