What is Elder Abuse?

Elder AbuseAnd What Can I Do About It?

Anytime a person knowingly, intentionally or neglectfully causes harm or a significant risk of harm to a vulnerable adult, it is considered elder abuse. Often physical violence comes to mind, but it presents itself in many ways. It includes such things as verbal abuse, financially taking advantage of someone, and more. This class will cover what may constitute abuse, warning signs of abuse, prevention measures and what you can do if you know of or suspect elder abuse.
