Elder Abuse: An Alarming Saga | 1.0 Contact Hours

$15.00

One in ten individuals over age 60 experiences some type of abuse. This statistic is believed to be inaccurate and, in fact, much higher. This may be due to the individual’s inability to report the abuse or fear of reporting the perpetrator. The elderly individual may be unable to report abuse due to inaccessibility (lack of phone service), geographical isolation, cognitive issues such as memory impairment or dementia, physical incapacity such as aphasia or frailty, dependency on the perpetrator due to physical limitations such as effects from a stroke, general fear of retaliation or that the abuser(s) may get in trouble from the complaint, and other factors. This article defines elder abuse, reviews legislation, reviews the targeted population, and identifies types of abusers. It also looks at awareness and prevention methods.
