Elder Abuse: A Growing Dilemma in an Aging Population

Quote:
Seniors are the least likely demographic to suffer violent crime, but they are most at risk of suffering violence at the hand of a family member.


Quote:
Elder abuse can take several forms. Among them:

1) Neglect: Signs include unkempt appearance, broken glasses, lack of appropriate clothing as well as malnutrition, dehydration and poor personal hygiene.
2) Physical Abuse: Signs include untreated or unexplainable injuries in various stages of healing, limb and skull fractures, bruises, black eyes and welts.
3) Psychological/emotional abuse: Watch for changes in behaviour (emotional upset/agitation resulting in sucking, biting, rocking), withdrawal or non-responsiveness.
4) Economic/financial abuse: Watch for sudden changes in bank accounts or banking activity, and major changes to legal documents such as powers of attorney and wills.
