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.
