  • The many faces of Elder Abuse

    To the editor:

    As America’s population grows older, we will witness an increase in a very unpleasant development that too often accompanies ageing. It’s called Elder Abuse. It can be perpetrated by caregivers, friends, family, and strangers. It can happen in aged care facilities, in the family home - wherever the aged victim may be - and it manifests itself in a variety of ways.

    Physical abuse consists of misuse of physical force which can result in bodily injury. Slapping, hitting, shaking, kicking, and excessive restraint are examples of this kind of abuse.
