Department Announces Elder And Dependent Adult Abuse Awareness Campaign

Each year hundreds of thousands of older persons are abused, neglected, and exploited. Many victims are people who are older, frail, and vulnerable and cannot help themselves and depend on others to meet their most basic needs. Abusers of older adults are both women and men, and may be family members, friends, or “trusted others.”

In general, elder abuse is a term referring to any knowing, intentional, or negligent act by a caregiver or any other person that causes harm or a serious risk of harm to a vulnerable adult. The Department of Aging and Adult Services has an Elder and Dependent Adult Abuse Awareness campaign which offers a place to turn for those being abused.

There is also help for the caretakers who are dealing with the stress and challenges of caring for a loved one.
