  • U.S. and Abuse of Senior Citizens

    This 5 page report discusses the fact that the majority of the population is aware that there is a serious problem in America with child abuse but few understand how much of a problem also exists related to elder abuse. In fact “some five percent of the Nation's elderly may be the victims of abuse from moderate to severe... or more than 1.5 million elderly may be victims of such abuse each year.” That number is all the more problematic due to the hidden and complex nature of the problem. Older Americans often live in some degree of isolation, whether in their own homes, the homes of adult children or institutions. Detection by people outside the family or the facility is much more unlikely and the occurrence of elder abuse is suspected to be remarkably under-reported. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
